Renew the Land and Water Conservation Fund 

America's most successful conservation and recreation program expired on Sept. 30.

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) was first passed in 1965 and has always enjoyed bipartisan support. It has funded local projects like development on the Bluff Trail in Montaña de Oro State Park and the Lopez Lake Recreation Area. In total, LWCF has funded more than 1,600 projects across California, including baseball fields, hiking trails, wildlife refuges, and more.

Congress needs to get with the program and renew the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which has done so much here in San Luis Obispo County, as well as throughout the country.
