Your comments are needed on outdoor recreation needs. Input is needed from individuals and land trusts. The funding is very important on the local level -- many conservation lands (and parks and playgrounds) owned by towns have received funding from the Land & Water Conservation Fund.
There is a“deadline of late September, early October.
Thanks to Marion Larson for providing this information.
Please share with your networks!
