LWCF is America’s most important tool for meeting communities’ conservation and recreation needs, from iconic national parks and wildlife refuges, to battlefields and historic sites, to working forests and critical habitat, to neighborhood playgrounds and recreation facilities.
The parks created through LWCF provide Latinos a way to reconnect to something central to our culture and identity. These green spaces are ideal for family gatherings and for facilitating community connections. In this way, the nation’s parks brings Latinos together. LWCF provides spaces for children and their families to walk, hike, run and exercise safely near their homes.
