Take Action

S.47, the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management and Recreation Act, passed through both Senate and the House, and has been signed by the President!

This historic legislation includes the North Country National Scenic Trail Route Adjustment in Minnesota and Vermont and the very important permanent re-authorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund. These reroutes are 26 years in the making. What an honor to announce this success!
We extend the biggest thank you to the many, many volunteer advocates, elected officials, NPS and NCTA staff, partner organizations and communities along the Trail for making this vision come to life. We will keep you informed as we celebrate this historic moment and advance our partnerships and the development of the Trail.

Contact your Senators and House members, and thank them for passing S.47!
