Partial Funding Restored to Heritage Land Conservation Fund

  • Thanks to all who came out on March 2 to talk to their legislators on land conservation, which helped significantly in convincing the House to add back $2.5 million per year ($5 million total) of the $5 million per year ($10 million total) swept from the Heritage Land Conservation Fund.
  • Nearly 40 organizations have signed on to a coalition statement to restore the funding for land conservation. See statement HERE.
  • The final budget that was submitted to the Governor included the partial restoration of the Heritage funds.
