START A PETITION

Oct 6, 2008

The fight continues!  Tomorrow and Wednesday there will be hearings in Springfield, Illinois regarding the proposed mine site in the sensitive wetland/eagle habitat along the Illinois River.  I will update my share after the hearings!

I'm sure this fight will continue for several more months, but the petition will close at the end of this month. If you havn't signed the petition to stop the destruction of eagle habitat, please do so now!  We need all the support we can get in this fight to save what little wetland habitat and eagle roosting and nesting habitat that we have left in the state of Illinois.  Most of the habitat has already been farmed, mined, or developed in some way.  We need to save this little portion of high quality habitat that lies between two state protected wetland habitats.
Please sign the petition today!
