Dolores Canyon

As our fight to protect Colorado from mining pollution wages on in the Senate, let's look at what's at stake from the new uranium boom and why we need your help today to ramp up support for strong environmental protections.
Dolores River Canyon is one of Colorado 's great unspoiled treasures -- and it's also at great risk from uranium mining. Lying northwest of Telluride and the San Juan Mountains, this gorgeous landscape rivals the famous canyon lands of Utah .
Each spring, thousands of rafters go to Dolores River Canyon to enjoy its 700-foot standstone walls and winding rapids. The canyon is also home to a broad array of wildlife such as bald eagles, mountain lions and bobcats.
Unfortunately, thousands of uranium claims litter the Dolores River Canyon . We should ensure that this unspoiled, wild land is protected from development. Where uranium mining does occur, we need to ensure strong environmental protections.
Nearly 3,000 people have taken action to asking to protect our wild lands, waters and public health from uranium mining pollution.
Now, as the Senate prepares for a decisive vote, we need your help to ramp up the pressure for strong environmental protections. Please take action today by clicking the link below or cutting and pasting it into your web browser.
The last uranium rush has already left behind an expensive and deadly legacy, including a $70 million superfund project in Dolores Basin . Help keep Colorado beautiful by taking action today.
