Jenny Weis provides us an update on Pebble Mine project and what you can do this week to help protect almost 60 million salmon in one of the most important habitats in the region.
We find out why this small project could become a much larger project if it’s allowed to move forward. This is a big year and the call to action for you is to reach out to your local and federal representatives to know you oppose this project.
