Take Action: Don’t Trash Joshua Tree!

Have you ever been climbing at Joshua Tree? If you have, you can probably remember the warm desert sun on your back, the rock beneath your fingers, the magnificent sunsets and the smell of… garbage?! That’s right, developers are trying to put the nation’s largest garbage dump right next to Joshua Tree National Park.

The proposed Eagle Mountain landfill would cover 3,500 acres of federal land, bordered on three sides by Joshua Tree’s unique beauty, and fragile ecosystem.

The proposal by developers Kaiser Ventures has been struck down by two courts. Now Kaiser Ventures is asking the Supreme Court to review the case, and the Department of the Interior has until February 25th to weigh in.

Tell Secretary Ken Salazar: Don’t trash Joshua Tree! Oppose the Eagle Mountain landfill project. Sign the petition before the February 25th deadline.

TAKE ACTION!
