New bill would commit state to more prescribed and cultural burning
America’s most useful and cost-effective conservation program was allowed to expire this September, and we need your help to keep it going! For more than 50 years, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has helped protect wildlife habitat, build parks and trails, and connect communities to the outdoors in every county across the country – without using a single taxpayer dollar.
On June 5, 2018, voters will have the opportunity to pass Prop 68, authorizing $4.1 billion in bond funding for parks, natural resource protection, climate adaptation, water quality and supply, and flood protection. If approved by voters in June, the measure would enable the League to continue protecting and stewarding our beautiful redwood forests.
As a California voter, you can make a transformational investment in our redwood forests and parks, and our state’s water resources by voting “yes” on June 5 for Proposition 68, the Clean Water and Safe Parks Act of 2018. The act would provide sorely needed funding to improve parks with new trails and visitor amenities and help our redwood parks remain healthy as the climate changes and our population grows. See how you can take action today.
