Tell the Biden administration: Protect the Boundary Waters
Dear USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack,
To stop the degradation of the natural world, we need to not only conserve more of our public lands, but also protect existing wilderness -- like Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness -- against threats, like the proposed Twin Metals mine.
Toxic runoff from the mine, entering the Boundary Waters' highly interconnected system of lakes and waterways at any point, would quickly spread throughout the ecosystem -- and the U.S. Forest Service's own research says that would inflict "irreparable damage" on this special place.
I urge you to oppose the Twin Metals mine.
