Dear Methow Headwaters Supporters,WE DID IT! Thanks to your support, advocacy and dedication the Methow Headwaters are now protected from industrial-scale mining - permanently! On March 12th the President signed S.47 - the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management and Recreation Act into law. This historic legislative package approves more than 100 public land, natural resource and water bills, including the permanent withdrawal of 340,079 acres in the Methow Headwaters from new mineral exploration and mine development. This would not have happened without a united community of supporters standing together! An extra special thanks to:
- All of YOU that came out, stood up and spoke out in favor of protecting this incredibly special place - it made all the difference - truly!
- Senator Maria Cantwell, Senator Patty Murray and Congressman Dan Newhouse and their dedicated staff teams who made this a reality (please send them a special note of thanks)!
- The 150+ businesses and 40+ local organizations that supported this effort from the get-go; our 12th District elected officials; the Okanogan County Commissioners; and our local Mayors and Town Council for offering an incredible amount of support all along the way - thank you, thank you!
