SOS for National Parks, Utah

We have an urgent matter we need your help on. On December 19th, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) intends to hold a lease sale for oil and gas tracts in the state of Utah. Ninety-three of these parcels are on or near the borders of Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dinosaur National Monument. If this moves forward, thousands of acres could be developed for oil and gas, industrializing the landscapes surrounding Utah's national parks.

It's going to take all of us to help put a stop to this. Tell Secretary Kempthorne to put a stop to the sale.

The front doors of our national parks are no place for oil and gas drilling. You and I know that, and the BLM should know this too. And the truth is, we don't have much time. Write your letter to Secretary Kempthorne TODAY and tell him to stop the BLM development rush. Take action!
