The Desolation Canyon proposed wilderness is the largest unprotected roadless complex in the lower 48 states. Centered around the Desolation Canyon stretch of the Green River, the area’s spectacular solitude and endless vistas are awe-inspiring. But now this remarkable place is once again in the crosshairs for destruction.
On March 16, the Interior Department issued the Gasco natural gas project final environmental impact statement and took one step closer to approving this massive development project, which would include 215 new wells in the Desolation Canyon proposed wilderness.
The BLM hasn’t issued its ‘record of decision’ for the Gasco project and can still change its mind about which alternative to adopt. Please take a minute to sign this petition before April 16! http://www.change.org/petitions/tell-the-obama-administration-to-take-desolation-canyon-out-of-its-crosshairs
