Can you imagine sulfide-ore copper mining — one of the most toxic industries in America — setting up next door to 1.1 million acres of wilderness habitat with pristine lakes, rivers and streams?

The U.S. Forest Service is taking public comments through August 11th as part of an environmental review of the watershed of the Boundary Waters that includes more than 1,000 lakes and 1,200 miles of rivers and streams untouched by pollution. This review will inform our government in evaluating this dangerous form of mining that threatens wilderness habitat and waterways.

Please tell the Forest Service to stop leasing federally-owned mineral rights to mining corporations in the watershed of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
