Protect the Kalmiopsis
The Kalmiopsis wildlands make up one of the largest roadless areas on the West Coast of the U.S. An area rich in wild rivers, the Kalmiopsis lies just 25 miles inland from the pacific ocean, in the heart of one of the most biologically diverse regions of the world: the Klamath-Siskiyou.
The areas proposed for mining contain key salmon habitat, botanical hotspots, and areas recommended as additions to the Kalmiopsis Wilderness, on both the Rogue River-Siskiyou National forest and Medford District BLM. Mining these areas would harm streams protected as National Wild and Scenic Rivers and others eligible for designation as Wild and Scenic Rivers. Help us to protect this national treasure.
