Stop New Mining Near the Grand Canyon
The U.S. Secretary of the Interior recently ordered a temporary ban on uranium mining in a one million-acre area surrounding the Grand Canyon. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of the Interior is simultaneously assessing the impact of mining.
This temporary ban provides us with a critical opportunity to protect this land from uranium mining today, and for generations to come!
These beautiful public lands include the Kaibab National Forest -- a popular section for sportsmen and women due to its populations of elk, mule deer, pronghorn and turkey. Protecting this area means protecting the spirit of self-sufficiency and connection to the land that makes America so unique.
Make your voice heard! Tell Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar that the public lands around the Grand Canyon must be protected from destructive uranium mining.

Dear Mr. Salazar,
The temporary ban of new uranium mining around the Grand Canyon area provides an important opportunity to protect this land.
The public lands around the Grand Canyon are a national treasure. The Kaibab National Forest borders the southeast portion of Grand Canyon National Park--an area famous for its mule deer, elk, pronghorn and turkey hunting opportunities.
We can halt new mining development and conserve this area for decades to come.
