Protect the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon from Unwise Developments and Uranium Mining

The Colorado River has sculpted one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world, The Grand Canyon.

The Colorado River’s canyon walls frame some of the world’s most famous whitewater - many consider a journey through the Grand Canyon to be a trip of a lifetime. It is one of the few remaining places in America where visitors can enjoy a truly remote and wild outdoor experience.

Millions take in the stunning views and breathtaking natural beauty of Grand Canyon National Park. With its stunning topography and dazzling, majestic landscape, this geological marvel is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

But if developers get their way, you might not see the beauty you're expecting.

Property developers want to build massive construction projects right along the Canyon’s edge. A tramway on the East Rim would create a permanent scar at the sacred confluence of two rivers — a spot considered holy to Native Americans across the Southwest. Plus, visitors will now be within miles of operational radioactive uranium sites.

These Threats Can Be Stopped, If You Speak Out Now

Tell the U.S. Department of the Interior to oppose these developments and end the legacy of Uranium mining near the Grand Canyon. We need to protect the Grand Canyon for all of us, for all time.
