Stop Megaloads from Degrading One of America’s First Wild & Scenic River Corridors!
The Wild & Scenic designated Middle Fork Clearwater and Lochsa rivers are threatened by the oil industry’s desire to convert U.S. Highway 12 into an industrial transport route for massive loads of oil processing equipment bound for the Canadian tar sands in northern Alberta.
Opening this cherished Wild and Scenic River corridor to megaload traffic would be akin to transforming a scenic road through one of our most prized national parks into an industrial haul route. It would degrade the river corridor’s solitude, mar its scenic beauty, and partially block access to recreational sites. This industrial activity would directly impact the people who live along the rivers and the thousands of visitors who flock to them to fish, paddle the whitewater rapids, and camp amongst the towering cedars and ponderosa pines. Allowing massive megaloads to travel through this Wild and Scenic corridor will ruin the values for which this river was protected.
Tell the U.S. Forest Service to protect the special values of these Wild & Scenic rivers by saying NO to megaload shipments through the river corridor.
