A Note from the Regional Director
Friends-

The Department of Interior is reviewing its program for leasing coal on public lands in the West. Through a series of hearings held around the country, members and supporters like you have provided stirring testimony on why the federal coal leasing program must be reformed, and in this video, one NWF member eloquently explains why we cannot allow coal to destroy our wildlife and landscapes.

We are transitioning to a new energy future, ending dependence on coal and replacing it with clean, renewable alternative fuels. This transition promises to be one of the greatest achievements of our era. I hope this update on energy and other wildlife happenings in our region shows the progress we can make.
