Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)

takes another step toward full funding.

As readers of AWF's eNews know, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), has been providing access to public lands and contributing to local parks and getting people outdoors for over 50 years.  Now, as more and more people are seeking the escape and healing powers of the outdoors, fully funding LWCF is even more important.  Because LWCF programs also create jobs, the bill has now been combined with other dual purpose bills that create jobs and do things like restoring the crumbling infrastructure in our nation's parks.  The newly combined bill is called the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) and also goes by S. 3422.  At AWF, we don't care what the legislation is ultimately called, but we know how important jobs are to our country and we also know how important it is to protect and provide access to our public lands. Please join us in calling on our elected officials to take action on bills like these that both create jobs AND protect our wildlife and public lands.

One Last Pot of Chili

Before Summer Sets in

May is Garden for Wildlife Month

May is Garden for Wildlife Month and to celebrate we’ve created a 4 vlogs (video blogs) series guaranteed to bring out your green thumb. 

Staffer Nikki Julien started us off by giving a tour of passion vines growing in her porch garden in north Phoenix. Staffer TJ Lauderback takes us along while he builds his raised garden bed in Chino Valley. Master Naturalist Josh Ruddick of Tucson takes the temperature under the tree to show how desert trees can reduce the heat island effect and mitigate climate change. Then Nikki’s back to inspire us to replace our lawns to replant for wildlife.

We hope you will celebrate National Garden Month by certifying your garden as a wildlife habitat with the National Wildlife Federation.
