Methow HeadwatersThe Methow Headwaters Campaign is working to protect the headwaters of the Methow Valley in Washington State from large-scale mining. The campaign recently hit a major milestone by scheduling an upcoming BLM public meeting this Tuesday, November 13th, 6 pm @ The Winthrop Barn.

This public meeting is to discuss the campaign’s proposal to secure a 20-year “mineral withdrawal” for the federal lands that compose the headwaters of the Methow watershed, approximately 340,000 acres of U.S. Forest Service land.

With the announcement of this public meeting, the BLM has re-opened its comment period, with the deadline for comments on November 13th.

Trout Unlimited supports this this proposal, and we’re looking to our grassroots members to help show this support by attending the public meeting, and providing positive public comments.
