While Grand Canyon National Park celebrates its 100th birthday, potential uranium mines and logging of old growth ponderosa pine forest just outside the boundary directly threaten water quality, human health, wildlife connectivity and cultural heritage in the area. Rep. Raul Grijalva introduced legislation to protect this special place, but Congress has failed to act on it.
Ask President Obama to protect the watershed from these threats by proclaiming a Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument!
Without swift action by the president, the current 20-year moratorium on new uranium mining could be overturned by a future administration. Additionally, logging and poor land stewardship could damage the land and contaminate drinking water for millions of Americans through the Colorado River watershed. We can’t let that happen.
Please join us now in calling for a national monument to preserve the greater Grand Canyon landscape!
