To many, these sports represent centuries— old traditions—and to others, they remain a way of life that reflects the resilience of our character. On National Hunting and Fishing Day, we celebrate the ways hunters and fishers contribute to our country and our environment, and we recommit to safeguarding America’s natural places for all posterity. Conserving our forests, fields, and waterways requires the efforts of every American, and I am dedicated to ensuring our people can enjoy our natural bounties and engage in activities like fishing and hunting for decades to come. Through my Administration’s America’s Great Outdoors Initiative we are promoting conservation priorities and expanding access to some of our Nation’s most treasured recreational spaces. I have also called on the Congress to fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund to further support these efforts, and tens of millions of dollars for restoration projects have been set aside as part of the ‘‘Find Your Park’’ campaign. Anglers and hunters of all ages enrich our communities and our environmental heritage, and these actions will help ensure our children and grandchildren are able to fish and hunt with theirs. Hunting and fishing do not just strengthen our culture and the bonds we share—they also drive local economies across our country. These activities exemplify the crucial need for preserving our natural resources and fuel the livelihoods of many Americans. For them—and for our entire Nation— we must commit to protecting the environment that gives us so much bounty. Today, we acknowledge the unique ways hunting and fishing fortify America, and we pledge our continuing support for those who enjoy and rely on these activities to better their communities and lives.

National Hunting and Fishing Day, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                For centuries, Americans have passed down a love of 
                hunting and fishing to their kids and grandkids, 
                advancing our Nation's independent, pioneering spirit 
                with each generation. To many, these sports represent 
                centuries--old traditions--and to others, they remain a 
                way of life that reflects the resilience of our 
                character. On National Hunting and Fishing Day, we 
                celebrate the ways hunters and fishers contribute to 
                our country and our environment, and we recommit to 
                safeguarding America's natural places for all 
                posterity.

                Conserving our forests, fields, and waterways requires 
                the efforts of every American, and I am dedicated to 
                ensuring our people can enjoy our natural bounties and 
                engage in activities like fishing and hunting for 
                decades to come. Through my Administration's America's 
                Great Outdoors Initiative we are promoting conservation 
                priorities and expanding access to some of our Nation's 
                most treasured recreational spaces. I have also called 
                on the Congress to fully fund the Land and Water 
                Conservation Fund to further support these efforts, and 
                tens of millions of dollars for restoration projects 
                have been set aside as part of the ``Find Your Park'' 
                campaign. Anglers and hunters of all ages enrich our 
                communities and our environmental heritage, and these 
                actions will help ensure our children and grandchildren 
                are able to fish and hunt with theirs.

                Hunting and fishing do not just strengthen our culture 
                and the bonds we share--they also drive local economies 
                across our country. These activities exemplify the 
                crucial need for preserving our natural resources and 
                fuel the livelihoods of many Americans. For them--and 
                for our entire Nation--we must commit to protecting the 
                environment that gives us so much bounty.

                Today, we acknowledge the unique ways hunting and 
                fishing fortify America, and we pledge our continuing 
                support for those who enjoy and rely on these 
                activities to better their communities and lives. By 
                working together to preserve the lands on which they 
                partake in these professions and pastimes, we can carry 
                forward the timeless traditions of hunting and fishing 
                for untold chapters of the American story.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim September 26, 2015, 
                as National Hunting and Fishing Day. I call upon all 
                Americans to observe this day with appropriate programs 
                and activities.
