Louisiana Outdoors Forever

We have some amazing news for conservation in Louisiana! House Bill 762 was passed by the Louisiana Legislature, officially creating the “Louisiana Outdoors Forever Program.” This means that we’re finally joining the vast majority of states with a dedicated budget for conservation funding, which gives Louisiana access to millions of dollars in matching federal and private investment.

In the long term, this will bolster our environment and economy by helping to ensure that our state’s natural resources are protected, and we remain a “Sportsman’s Paradise” for generations to come. Our work to #ProtectLouisiana doesn’t end here, but it’s heartening to know that conservation efforts are now being prioritized at the state level.

Land Trust for Louisiana has been in partnership with other conservation groups across the state to support HB 762. You can learn more by visiting Louisiana Outdoors Forever.
