“This is an important moment in the conservation movement. The debate over the protection of public lands has shifted from discussion about the pros and cons, to members of Congress from both parties uniting to protect wild places. This legislation supports outdoor recreation in every county in the country through the permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, protects millions of acres and creates four new national monuments. The preservation of America’s public lands and waters is not only one of the greatest gifts we can leave for future generations, it is also a critical step toward tackling the climate crisis head-on before it’s too late.”
