Act for Wildlife

National Landscape Conservation System Act PASSED by House!

On April 9th, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a bill to make protection of the National Landscape Conservation System permanent. With the help of thousands of you, the bill PASSED by a vote of 278 - 140.

The Bureau of Land Management's National Landscape Conservation System is a network of some of the BLM's best lands and waters - crown jewels protected for their special cultural, ecological and scientific values. The 26-million acre System contains over 850 units and includes National Conservation Areas, National Monuments, Wilderness Areas, Wilderness Study Areas, Wild and Scenic Rivers, National Scenic and Historic Trails, and other designations. Next, the bill will go on for a vote in the Senate.
