Stop Mining Utah's National Canyon Park

The Bureau of Land Management is getting ready to open an enormous 3,500 acre strip coal mine in Utah, just along Bryce Canyon National Park’s borders.


Mining would pollute the region's clean water and air, flood Bryce Canyon's world-famous dark night skies with light, destroy wildlife habitat, disturb the serenity of the park with industrial noise, and generate toxic coal dust from hundreds of trucks hauling coal. It would turn southern Utah into an industrial zone, jeopardizing tourism and community health.


Tell the BLM they should not be jeopardizing one of our nation's treasures – especially not for an outdated, filthy, and dangerous energy source.
