Conservation Fund, Antiquities Act Prove Great for Outdoors

Part of the Antiquities Act project

Author(s): Jim DiPeso

Year: 2011


The far-reaching America’s Great Outdoors (AGO) Report, released on February 16, synthesizes input from a national conversation that got Americans talking about the places they love and how they want to work together to protect them. Our public lands, the heritage of all Americans, face many hallenges - climate change, air and water pollution, urban sprawl, and loss of open space. Policymakers on both sides of the aisle can take direction from the nation’s collective wisdom as they look to reshape U.S. conservation policy.Two of the conservation tools supported in the report have stood the test of time as effective and bipartisan – the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and the Antiquities Act. Inclusion of these two powerful and proven federal conservation tools in a 21st-century strategy for America’s Great Outdoors deserves high praise and our solid support. These tools will once again help us build on Roosevelt’s legacy and hand it off to future generations of Americans.
