**ALERT** Your support is needed for the Land & Water Conservation Fund!

​Yesterday, September 30th, Congress allowed one of our nation’s most successful conservation programs to expire. For more than fifty years, the Land and Water Conservation

Yesterday, September 30th, Congress allowed one of our nation’s most successful conservation programs to expire. For more than fifty years, the Land and Water Conservation Fund has provided billions of dollars to outdoor recreation access for sportsmen and women like you. Without reauthorization, we stand to lose dedicated funding for this widely supported, bi-partisan conservation legacy that does not rely on a single penny from tax-payers.

In the words of Greg Malaska, PATU President:

"As a lifelong resident of rural Pennsylvania and longtime angler and hunter, I urge Congress to reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The LWCF has provided significant funding throughout Pennsylvania on a diverse series of projects that benefit hunters, anglers, hikers, bikers, birders, and everyone who enjoys the outdoors. Here in the Poconos, thousands of dollars in LWCF funds have been invested in the Delaware River watershed and beyond, bolstering the local tourism and service economies. It has also allowed for the development of lasting public/private partnerships throughout the state. Without reauthorization, these benefits cannot continue.  This vital program enjoys bipartisan support in an era where compromise is becoming extremely rare. It is simply too important to disappear."
