$125M in LWCF monies headed to inholding acquisitions in NPs
Millions of dollars of Land and Water Conservation Fund revenues are targeted to be spent this fiscal year on key land acquisitions in units of the National Park System from Alaska to Florida under plans announced by Interior Department officials.
More than $125 million from the fund, which was fully funded at $900 million thanks to the Great American Outdoors Act, will be used by the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to acquire private lands. In the park system, funds will be used for such things as acquiring private inholdings at Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve in Alaska to obtaining a golf course at Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio.
