NRPA Applauds Environmental Policy

Association Supports Acts from Department of Interior

NRPA supports the decision made by the Department of the Interior to uphold the Outdoor Recreation Legacy Program.

The CEO and president of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), Kristine Stratton, issued a statement applauding the recent secretarial order from the Biden Administration that rescinds previously installed limitations on the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). Stratton explained that the new order demonstrates a commitment to striving for equity outdoors and toward promoting quality parks and green spaces for everyone.


The statement read, "We (NRPA) are excited the Department of the Interior (DOI) is beginning a thoughtful process to update the LWCF manual in a way that is consistent with the intent of the Great American Outdoors Act and upholds the purpose of the Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership (ORLP) program."
