Congress: extend Great American Outdoor Act’s national park maintenance fund

Urge Congress to extend The Great American Outdoors Act’s (GAOA’s)  national park maintenance fund by providing at least five more years of needed investment to fix our parks. 

June is Great Outdoors Month! This is the perfect time to highlight GAOA’s maintenance fund, the Legacy Restoration Fund, which has addressed billions of dollars in repair needs at parks in nearly every state. These projects include fixing damaged trails at Mammoth Cave National Park, replacing a failing water system at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, rehabilitating staff housing at Glacier Bay and Great Sand Dunes National Parks, and enhancing campgrounds at Yosemite, Rocky Mountain, and Mount Rainier National parks.  

Hundreds more projects are underway addressing overdue park maintenance projects and greatly improving visitor experiences. 

But, additional resources are needed to continue to address the backlog of repair needs. Thousands of projects, both big and small, are in need of funding. The urgency of the situation cannot be overstated. 

It’s clear that our parks need more help to protect the natural and cultural resources that tell our nation’s history and ensure parks can continue to welcome millions of visitors each year. Urge Congress to keep investing more in our parks.
