Take Action-Protect Grand Canyon National Park from Uranium Mining
3 years ago

New uranium mining near Grand Canyon National Park has the potential to contaminate the Colorado River, which flows through the park; damage sacred sites of multiple Native American tribes; fragment and harm wildlife; and spoil the integrity of landscapes adjacent to one of America's most iconic places. Due to these concerns, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar imposed a moratorium in 2009 on approximately 1 million acres so land managers could prepare an environmental review that includes a variety of management options.

Your voice in support of Alternative B--which calls for maximum protection by extending the moratorium on all 1 million acres for 20 years--is crucial to preserving Grand Canyon National Park and surrounding public lands. Send your comments to BLM District Manager Scott Florence by May 4th!
