SOUTH JERSEY - U.S. Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo was recently honored by the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) for his efforts to protect and enhance the nation’s national parks.
“As a boy I spent a lot of time at Parvin State Park, fishing and enjoying the outdoors with my cousins and friends. As an adult, I still look forward to opportunities I have to visit the nation’s parks, scenic rivers, and wildlife refuges, including those in South Jersey,” said LoBiondo. “I’ve worked closely with local members of the National Parks Conservation Association and I applaud the outstanding work the NPCA does each day to protect our environmental treasures for future generations.”
Since 1919, the nonpartisan NPCA has been the leading voice for our national parks. NPCA and its more than one million members and supporters work together to protect and preserve our nation’s natural, historical, and cultural heritage for future generations.
“It’s an honor to recognize Congressman LoBiondo for supporting our national parks on the floor of the House during the 113th Congress,” said NPCA President and CEO Clark Bunting. “As the 114th Congress works on policies and funding levels impacting our national parks, I look forward to working with Congressman LoBiondo to ensure national parks have safe roadways, are well maintained, and have the resources they need to thrive for their upcoming centennial.”
The award was presented to LoBiondo and other recipients at a Capitol Hill ceremony earlier this week. More information is available at www.npca.org.
