Stand With Me
Two of America’s greatest natural treasures, Voyageurs National Park and Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness cover over one million acres and contain over a thousand lakes fed by pristine water. These magnificent locations attract a quarter million visitors to northern Minnesota every year, which sustains over 18,000 jobs.
Now, Voyageurs and the Boundary Waters are threatened by copper sulfide mining, a risky type of mining never before permitted in Minnesota. Pollution from these mines will flow directly into the heart of the Boundary Waters.
I need your help to convince Congress to protect the pristine waters of two of America’s (and Minnesota’s!) natural treasures. I need you to tell Congress to pass my legislation, the National Park and Wilderness Waters Protection Act (H.R. 1796).
Sign the petition and join me in fighting to protect Voyageurs National Park and Boundary Waters Canoe Area from sulfide-ore copper mining pollution.
