The Conservation Alliance twice-funded Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center (KS Wild) for their work to stop several proposed nickel mines in southwest Oregon. These mines are adjacent to the Kalmiopsis Wilderness area and the Illinois, Rogue and Smith Wild and Scenic rivers. The Red Flat Corporation, a subsidiary of a British investment firm, proposed a strip mine adjacent to these pristine roadless areas. Unfortunately, an outdated mining law from 1872 allows foreign companies to mine our public lands. Today, the water quality and fish habitat in these wild rivers are at risk.
Take action today by telling the Oregon Water Resources Department not to grant water rights to the mining company.
We’re proud to fund KS Wild for this important work to protect Oregon’s forests and rivers.
