    BLM Celebrates 50th Anniversary of the LWCF 

    As a part of Interior Secretary Sally Jewell’s events to underscore the importance of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) to communities’ conservation, outdoor recreation and clean water projects, BLM Director Neil Kornze visited the Sandy Ridge Mountain Bike Trailhead in Oregon today, July 8, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the LWCF. The event highlighted conservation and recreation achievements along the Sandy River and showcased the work being done by BLM and partners to conserve regionally significant Pacific Northwest landscapes and endangered species while providing high quality opportunities for public recreation, tourism, and youth employment. Read the news release .

    The LWCF was established by Congress in 1964 to ensure access to outdoor recreation resources for present and future generations, and to provide money to federal, state and local governments to purchase land, water and wetlands for the benefit of all Americans. The primary source of revenue for the Land and Water Conservation Fund is from federal oil and gas leases on the Outer Continental Shelf.
