For more than half a century the Land and Water Conservation Fund has been an essential tool for connecting sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts with nature. Renowned sportsman Hal Herring imagined the loss Americans would experience as a future without the Land and Water Conservation Fund: “The end of the LWCF will be the end of an era in the U.S., an era in which the common citizens have come to expect a higher quality of life, cleaner waters for swimming, open spaces for running and playing with their children, the ability to hold on to traditions like hunting and fishing, hiking, wandering and camping, experiencing the true freedom of our birthright as Americans."
This report outlines the Land and Water Conservation Fund projects that have benefited sportsmen and wildlife by increasing access to hunting and fishing grounds and connecting wildlife migration corridors to ensure more continuous wilderness across America.
