Today is day 269 of our #wildernessyear to @savetheBWCA.
Rigorous scientific evaluation shows a high likelihood that sulfide-ore mining operations being proposed on the edge of the Wilderness would pollute the Boundary Waters if they are developed. Multiple studies, including one published recently in the Journal of Hydrology, show a high probability that pollution from these proposed mine sites would flow into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
Please join us in urging the Forest Service to deny the expired leases held by Twin Metals along the edge of the Wilderness! Speak up today! Share this with your friends, family, and neighbors and urge them to sign the petition and take action.
