The Farm Bill is the most important legislation for conserving private lands in the United States. About 70 percent of the land in the lower 48 states is privately owned. Nearly 900 million acres, which makes up roughly half of the contiguous United States, are managed as cropland, rangeland, or pastureland.
The Farm Bill provides the owners of these lands with tools to protect and conserve their land and their way of life. The Farm Bill expires this year, and The Nature Conservancy wants to pass a new bill that strengthens the conservation programs to achieve cleaner water, healthier soils, improved wildlife habitats, more outdoor recreation opportunities, and increased flood control.
