The Kalmiopsis – Wild Rivers Coast | too special to mine!
It’s wild, rugged and home to the National Wild & Scenic Smith, Illinois and Chetco Rivers. These rivers are some of the most pristine in the nation, providing clean drinking water for downstream communities and wild salmon and steelhead to local economies. Nickel mining would turn priceless, botanically rich National Forest lands—with the highest of conservation values—into polluted industrial zones and the private domain of mining companies. Protect Southwest Oregon and Northwest California’s Wild Rivers Coast and Kalmiopsis region. There’s no place like it on earth.
