BHA’s Largest Fly-In Targets an Important Conservation Fund, LWCF
Last week, BHA chapter members from across the nation gathered in Washington, D.C., to advocate for the reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, America’s most popular and successful conservation program.
The diverse group of 30 BHA members, who traveled to D.C. from destinations as diverse as Oregon and Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Mexico, were ecstatic to tell their LWCF stories and share their experiences with congressional staff and with friends and family on social media. Take a look!
The LWCF, a 53-year old American legacy, uses non-taxpayer dollars from offshore oil and gas development to conserve and enhance access to public lands where we hunt, fish and recreate. Businesses and communities across the nation rely on the LWCF to sustain the places and opportunities that drive the nation’s $887 billion annual outdoor economy. America’s 40 million hunters and anglers rely on the LWCF to provide abundant, easy access to public lands and waters. Without action by Congress, however, the LWCF will sunset at the end of September.
