President Trump recently signed a bipartisan conservation bill aimed at preserving America’s national parks for the next generation.
Under the new law, known as the ‘Great American Outdoors Act,’ over $900 million will be invested each year into the land and conservation fund. This will help with ongoing repairs and restoration of our national parks, wildlife refugees and national monuments.
Additionally, nearly $10 billion will go towards priority repairs and other agencies like fish and wildlife services.
