Join AMC Boston's Young Members and Conservation Committees for an (almost) Earth Day kickoff of our Land and Water Conservation Fund campaign! The LWCF is a hugely important program that has helped to create many of the outdoor recreation spaces AMC members enjoy. Without action from Congress, it will expire on September 30, 2018, so we are working to encourage our legislators to take action and preserve our outdoor spaces. Join us to learn more about the LWCF, send a postcard to your legislator, and enjoy some pizza with other AMC Boston members!
