Support the mining time-out Jan. 18!

Remember our massive victory in November, when we won the two-year time-out on gold mining on public lands near Yellowstone?

Now here’s how you can help solidify this victory: Join us at a public meeting in Livingston (MT) to support the time-out. Tell the Forest Service they're doing the right thing. Your voice is more important than ever as we face a new Congress and a new administration.

When: Wed, Jan 18, 4-7 pm

Where: Shane Center, 415 E Lewis St, Livingston (MT)

This is an open house, so drop in when whenever you feel like it, and stay as long as you like.

We’ll also help you put your support in writing. Pop over to Katabatic Brewing Company (117 W Park, Livingston) after you’ve spent a few minutes at the Shane Center, and we’ll help you get your comment on the record to send to the Forest Service.

Local people have been fighting to protect these lands from two foreign-backed mining companies that are planning to explore for gold near Yellowstone. Locals asked for the time-out. Now you can lend your support. Join us in telling the Forest Service: Yellowstone is more valuable than gold!

Thank you for all you do to keep risky gold mines out of Greater Yellowstone.
