NFS Action Alert: Keep Toxic Mining out of Southern Oregon's Pistol River


The devastation from Nickel mining lasts for centuries and is impossible to clean up

Thanks to the Native Fish Society it's never been easier to make your voice heard. The Rogue River-Siskyou National Forest is accepting public comment on a proposed Nickel strip mine in the headwaters of the Pistol River and Hunter Creek in southern Oregon. Both watersheds are important habitat for steelhead and salmon, and Nickel strip-mining would certainly have a devastating impact on water quality, and hydrology for centuries. Please take two minutes to submit comments through the Native Fish Society's website:
