Congress reauthorized the critical conservation bill, known as the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). Congress let it expire September 30 after 50 years of successful conservation funding. Many organizations, including Hills For Everyone, supported its renewal. In the last few days, Congress approved an omnibus spending package with a three-year extension the Fund. There is an increase in the annual allocation and $450 million is available for conservation each year. These funds were used in the purchase of a parcel in Chino Hills State Park. Let’s ensure this funding source remains in place and gets extended well beyond 2019.
