WASHINGTON (WTRF) — Tuesday was historic for conservation across the country. President Trump signed the Great American Outdoors Act into law.

The legislation ensures permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
That money goes to maintain public lands, like New River Gorge and the Monongahela National Forest in the Mountain State.

West Virginia’s Senator Joe Manchin lead the bipartisan group who introduced the bill.
He said the signing will “guarantee the wild and wonderful corners of West Virginia are protected for years to come.”
