The Kalmiopsis – Wild Rivers Coast: It’s too special to mine!
It’s wild, rugged and home to the National Wild & Scenic Smith, Illinois and Chetco rivers. They’re some of the most pristine rivers in the nation, providing clean drinking water for downstream communities and wild salmon and steelhead to local economies. For everyone who’s working hard to protect them and the beloved Hunter Creek and Pistol River from nickel strip mining and pollution—THANK YOU! With overwhelming support, there’s now interim protection from new mining, while permanent protection is sought.
