Sustainability: Protect the Grand Canyon!

Sierra Club
Ranging from desert grasslands to lush, coniferous forests, the proposed Grand Canyon Watershed embraces one of America’s most spectacular landscapes-the Grand Canyon. This region 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. In addition, the area hosts lands of great significance to the region’s indigenous people. Unfortunately, ill-conceived uranium mining, logging of ancient trees, and damaging livestock grazing threaten the Grand Canyon Watershed. Ask President Obama to protect this natural, cultural and archeological treasure by naming it as a national monument. A national monument designation will help preserve sacred indigenous sites and traditional values, give wildlife much needed room to roam, and prevent harmful uranium mining, logging and other destructive practices from destroying this beautiful part of America.
