Goal: 25,000 Progress: 6,789
Sponsored by: National Parks Conservation Association

For years, the Grand Canyon watershed has been protected from new mining claims, but a new report shows that the Trump administration considers the ban to be a "burden" and is intent on reversing it.

The threat of mining was one of the things that inspired President Theodore Roosevelt to designate the Grand Canyon as a National Monument in 1908. That should have settled the matter for good, but the mining companies never gave up, and want to continue exploratory drilling — just a few miles from the park.

The Grand Canyon is a made-in-America treasure. Please sign our petition today to tell the Forest Service that protecting the Grand Canyon isn't a "burden" to any American! In fact, it's an honor.

Dear Forest Service,

As someone who appreciates the untouched beauty of America's national parks, I'm frankly outraged that the Forest Service is recommending a cancellation of the ban on new mining claims in the Grand Canyon watershed.

The Grand Canyon is a made-in-America treasure. It's our right and responsibility to safeguard it now and forever. No mine can ever take its place.

Thank you for considering my views.

Sincerely,

Petition Signatures
