Dear Decision and Policy Makers,

Please help permanently protect the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Voyageurs National Park from proposed sulfide-ore copper mining. Toxic mining pollution would damage rivers and lakes that flow into the Boundary Waters and Voyageurs National Park. Please make preserving these pristine waters and unspoiled forests, and the sustainable regional economy, a priority. Show your appreciation for the wilderness, the ecological health of the Northwoods, and the communities they support by permanently protecting these two national treasures from sulfide-ore copper mining.
