What can I do?
Many people are asking what they can do to protect the Santa Ritas from the proposed mine. Here are a few ways that YOU can help today:
Remember, this mine is still FAR FROM A DONE DEAL! The Forest Service hasn't issued its final decision, and there is currently a formal objection process that requires review by the Regional Forester. And of course the US Army Corps of Engineers has yet to issue an essential Rosemont water pollution permit, which the EPA recently recommended be denied.
Thank you for your help as we continue to protect our beloved Santa Rita Mountains!
Volunteer with SSSR - WE CAN USE YOUR HELP!
We can always use more volunteers! We mostly need help with community outreach at our info table at community events, but you might also help with data entry, website development, advertising and design, media relations, etc. If you have skills, we would love to put them to use!
