Take action to preserve a mining ban around Boundary Waters

A recent victory for the Boundary Waters may be short-lived. Legislation introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives aims to reverse a 20-year ban in the headwaters of the Boundary Waters. If passed, toxic sulfur-ore mining could come and pollute the wildernesses’ pristine waters.

With the help of environmental advocates like you, we were able to secure this ban on mining near the Boundary Waters. Now, we need your help defending it. Urge your U.S. House representative to support permanently protecting the Boundary Waters.
