CALLING ALL CONCERNED CITIZENS – Save the Wild U.P. will offer “lunch & learn” activist trainings to help you prepare for an important public hearing on Aquila Resources’ Back Forty Project.
Learn about the Menominee River (the U.P.’s largest watershed), specific threats posed by an open-pit sulfide mine on the river, and how to speak out at public hearings.
We’ll provide visual overviews of all four permits and key concerns – the primary sulfide mining application, and permits regulating Back Forty’s wetland degradation, air pollution caused by mine and mill emissions, and wastewater discharges to the Menominee River.
Join us on Monday, August 1st from 12:30 to 3pm, followed by a social hour. Location: the Ore Dock Brewing Company’s public space (upstairs), 114 Spring St., Marquette, MI 49855. As the Dalai Lama said, “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”
