Access Fund Launches Advocacy Campaign to Support Land & Water Conservation Fund

In light of the BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, Congress is looking to invest $900 million each year to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) – a fund set up in 1965 to reinvest some of the wealth from offshore drilling into conservation and recreation.

The LWCF is the most effective funding mechanism available to Congress to expand and improve opportunities for human-powered outdoor pursuits like climbing. And with our new Access Fund Land Conservation Campaign, we are positioned to take full advantage of this funding to protect climbing lands on a scale like never before.

Congress plans to take this legislation up this week. Please take action and write your Senators and Representatives today using our easy-to-use advocacy tool!

This is a LIVE action alert. Please take action now!
