The Department of the Interior moved forward with the lease sale of the Big Hole River without informing local wildlife leaders and without addressing the concerns of local people. Now, officials are trying to cover their tracks by suggesting that auctioning off the land will have no impacts -- as if auctioning off the land won’t lead to destructive fossil fuel development. The impacts could be catastrophic.
The good news is, more than 3,000 acres of land have already been taken off the table for right now. But if we are going to convince the Trump administration to change course and protect all the lands surrounding the Big Hole River, we need your help.
