Mining the Grand Canyon is out of the question. It is a precious national park.
The Grand Canyon needs to be protected. Please sign the petition to keep the this national treasure protected from exploitation.
Ranging (click here) from desert grasslands to lush, coniferous forest, the proposed Grand Canyon watershed encompasses a wild, rugged array of towering cliffs, deeply incised tributary canyons, and numerous springs that flow into Grand Canyon National Park's Colorado River.
Proposed uranium mining, logging, and other human activity threatens the Grand Canyon watershed. Naming it as a national monument would protect this unique American icon for generations to enjoy.
Do you think that President Obama should protect this watershed by naming the Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument?
