Yosemite Park Is In Danger


Californians, our favorite park is about to turn into gross toxic land. Act now, go to environmentcalifornia.org  and sign petition.

Mining companies have staked 185 claims within 10 miles of Yosemite National Park—close enough that the cyanide and other toxic chemicals they use to separate ore from rock could run off into the Tuolumne River and the trails and wild lands that surround it—historically, mining wastes often escape into local waterways.
When confronted by a similar threat to the Grand Canyon, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar declared a moratorium on new mining leases outside the Grand Canyon National Park. Now we’re working to unite thousands of Californians in calling on Secretary Salazar to keep Yosemite safe from toxic mining.
