Land and Water Conservation Fund
The Land and Water Conservation Fund, America’s most important conservation and recreation program, has saved places in nearly every state and every county in the United States. The Land and Water Conservation Fund is an important tool to protect God’s creation.
We are called to be good stewards of God’s creation and the Land and Water Conservation Fund helps us fulfill our stewardship mandate. Our political leaders on both sides of the aisle have supported the Land and Water Conservation Fund. It is because of Teddy Roosevelt's vision to start protecting our recreational opportunities, Dwight D. Eisenhower’s instinct for conservation action, John F. Kennedy's commitment to the outdoors, and Lyndon B. Johnson's creation of LWCF that we now have the most extensive network of open spaces in the world to hunt, fish, hike, swim, and play.
- In the Press Herald, Rev. Rich Killmer urges protection of LWCF in order to steward God's creation.
- In South Carolina's Commercial Appeal, Rev. Cliff Bahlinger talks about keeping faith with our parks and monuments.
- In the Columbus Dispatch, Rev. Betty Holley brings to light American heroes told through the story of public lands and LWCF.
