The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has provided federal funding for more than 1,000 projects in New Mexico since it was created 50 years ago. The Fund has preserved many beautiful natural places for families and kids to enjoy and learn from – including the Petroglyph National Monument right here in Albuquerque. Read about the top 10 great LWCF-supported places we can take our kids here.

Unfortunately, the LWCF is set to expire on September 30, 2015. Without congressional action, this fund could disappear forever. That is why New Mexico Voices for Children is collaborating with groups around New Mexico to educate families about the importance of the LWCF and the opportunities it has protected for our kids.

Please sign our petition to help ensure the LWCF continues to receive funding!
