March 9th, 2009 Posted in

Last week the Land and Water Conservation Fund Coalition, which the Highlands Coalition is a member of, released a new report: “Conserving America’s Landscapes”.

 

The new report highlights the need for full funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund and Forest Legacy Programs, while exploring the importance of land conservation to current issues including public health, clean water, forest fire prevention, tourism and community economics, and fisheries and wildlife adaptation to climate change.

 

The report can be downloaded by visiting The Trust for Public Lands website at: http://www.tpl.org/content_documents/lwcf_report_webfinal.pdf
