Thoughts & Comments

The Land and Water Conservation Fund has improved the nation’s recreational assets and quality of life immeasurably over the last 52 years. This unique partnership between the states, federal, and local governments has built playgrounds, ball fields, trails, swimming pools and park systems that provide our citizens with close to home recreation. Not only are these community assets, they also contribute to our economy with $140 billion in economic activity and almost 1 million jobs. In the coming year, we know that we need to modernize and improve upon this legacy of success. We will need to work closely with Congress and the public to re-authorize the program, to assure fair and equitable funding for stateside assistance and to improve implementation in partnership with the National Park Service. Thank you to all of those who work on the state level to improve outdoor recreation and connect with communities across the country.
