Your comments and support for the action made a difference! Thank you.
The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management have completed an Environmental Assessment on a proposed mineral withdrawal and are receiving public comments right now. The proposed mineral withdrawal is a very good thing for the Smith River because it will help prevent strip mining for nickel in the headwaters of the North Fork Smith —- as well as in headwaters of the Pistol River, Illinois River, and Hunter Creek.
Our partners at Smith River Alliance are compiling signatures on a public comment letter to submit to the Forest Service. Click here to add your name today.
Comments are being accepted through May 27th. Do it today and help ensure that the Smith remains wild and scenic for generations to come.
