Methow Headwaters

A Canadian mining company wants to conduct exploratory drilling for copper at the headwaters of the Methow River. This is the story of a mountain community coming together to share why the Methow Valley, in the heart of the North Cascades, is too special to mine. “It’s become a more unique place the more it’s stayed the same,” says local farmer Sam Lucy. “Right?” The Methow Headwaters Campaign is working to secure a mineral withdrawal and permanently protect the Methow from the threat of industrial-scale mining.

We need your voice to be heard! The Bureau of Land Management is taking public comment on a mineral withdrawal for the Methow Headwaters. It’s imperative that the BLM hear from everyone who cares about the Methow Valley and its critical headwaters.

Let them know today why you support the mineral withdrawal and the protection of the Methow Headwaters from industrial-scale mining!
