Our National Monuments Need Your Voice Today

Congress needs to hear that you support a new bill to protect our national monuments—including Giant Sequoia National Monument—from actions that threaten their natural and cultural resources. The ANTIQUITIES Act of 2019 would reinforce existing laws that safeguard the status of our presidentially designated national monuments. The League needs your help to push for protection of our national monuments.

Urge Renewal of LWCF Today

Now that the 116th Congress has taken office, your voice is needed. Urge your Member of Congress to support permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), America’s most useful and cost-effective conservation program. LWCF was allowed to expire last year, and so far the country has lost more than $230 million that should be used to protect redwood forests and other wildlands and make parks accessible.

TAKE ACTION
