Interior secretary visits Fort Worth, touts conservation fund

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell is scheduled to promote full funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund during a visit to Fort Worth.

Jewell is scheduled to join Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and Ralph Duggins, vice chairman of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission, at a Tuesday morning news conference at Fort Worth's Gateway Park.

The park was made possible, in part, by grants from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Jewell will announce support for another parks project at the Tuesday news conference.

Offshore oil and gas royalties support the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Over 50 years, it has funded more than 42,000 state and local parks, playgrounds, urban wildlife refuges, greenways, trails and open spaces. But it's to expire next year unless reauthorized by Congress.
