About the Petition

Most of us think that the Grand Canyon is sacred and outside the realm of destructive development. But that is not true. The New York Times spotlighted major developments that would devastate the canyon's wild nature, beauty, and overall health.

Here’s our chance to reaffirm our commitment to wilderness and to the Grand Canyon. American Rivers is working with local partners to save this special place.

To: Grand Canyon National Park

Let's keep the Grand Canyon wild. The Grand Canyon is under threat of an unprecedented level of development. I'm voicing my concern over the latest proposed projects, including

—a gondola tramway into the Grand Canyon;

—new water wells into aquifers that supply springs in the Grand Canyon;

—all uranium mining in Grand Canyon watersheds; and—all other uses that threaten the integrity of Grand Canyon National Park.

Sincerely,

[Your name here]
