Victory! Congress Passes Public Lands Package

February 27, 2019

Update on the LWCF passage as part of the public lands passage by Congress, from our friends at the Washington Trails Association:

Excerpt: “On Tuesday night, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the largest public lands bill in recent history, including permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF); new protections for Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area and Methow Headwaters; and the¬†Every Kid Outdoors Act, authorizing for seven years the Every Kid in a Park program (now called¬†Every Kid Outdoors), to encourage youth to visit their national parks and public lands. This is an enormous win for outdoor recreationists and conservationists alike, with sweeping impacts on Washington state.”
