President Trump recently signed a bipartisan conservation bill aimed at preserving America’s national parks for the next generation.
Under the new law, known as the ‘Great American Outdoors Act,’ over $900 million will be invested each year into the land and conservation fund. This will help with ongoing repairs and restoration of our national parks, wildlife refugees and national monuments.
