Every year, the Land for Tomorrow Coalition convenes nearly 100 advocates to meet with the state's lawmakers on key issues including increasing funding for the Clean Water Management Trust Fund and the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund. This year's virtual Lobby Day will recognize the role that land plays in every aspect of our lives, from recreation to economic development.
“We appreciate the legislature’s support of these critical conservation trust funds. We look forward to working with the legislature in future years to continue to increase funding for these trust funds.”
- Bill Holman, Chairman of the Land for Tomorrow Legislative Committee.
As the North Carolina legislator prepares to go into session, the Land for Tomorrow coalition urges state lawmakers to maintain reliable funding for the state’s conservation trust funds in this upcoming fiscal year. The continued investment for these funds will not only protect our state’s natural resources but it will also invest in the well-being of all North Carolinians and help rebuild our local and recreational economies. By doing so, North Carolina can continue to establish itself as a great place for our residents to work, live, and play – as well as provide economic opportunity for those in the recreational industry.
