The Land and Water Conservation Fund is America’s most important conservation program. It is funded from the federal oil and gas leases on the Outer Continental Shelf pursuant to the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act and appropriated by Congress.

Administered by the Wyoming State Parks & Cultural Resources Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails, since its inception the program has funded hundreds of recreational projects throughout Wyoming totaling nearly $40 million.

“We encourage communities to apply and to call with any project planning or grant application questions,” Wyoming State Parks Grant Manager Louisa Lopez said. “The Land and Water Conservation Fund has granted projects in every Wyoming county since 1964 including approximately 372 locations.”
