Grand Canyon

Thank Secretary Salazar!

Take Action

Victory at the Grand Canyon!

Dear Friend of the National Parks,

Thanks to supporters like you, Department of the Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has decided to continue the ban on new uranium mining claims on more than one million acres of public lands surrounding Grand Canyon National Park!

This tremendously important decision will not only preserve the integrity and incredible views surrounding the park, but also prevent uranium mining pollution from contaminating the Colorado River, which supplies drinking water to 25 million people.

Take Action: Show your appreciation for Secretary Salazar’s decision by thanking him for continuing the ban on new uranium mining claims near the Grand Canyon.

Victories like this could not happen without the continued support from people like you. It’s up to all of us to ensure that national treasures like the Grand Canyon are protected for future generations.

Thank you for helping make this victory possible and thank you for taking the time to let Secretary Salazar know that his action is greatly appreciated.
