We sent out a conservation action alert earlier this week on the proposed Villages at Vigneto mega-development, and we want to follow up to encourage you to take a minute of your time to stand up for the San Pedro River! Your voice can make a difference!
Now it is even easier to submit comments, by using Sierra Club Grand Canyon Chapter's online action alert, which has talking points Tucson Audubon endorses. You can also choose to tailor your message.
Tucson Audubon has joined together with the Sierra Club and five other national, regional and local conservation organizations in a lawsuit against the Army Corps of Engineers, to hold key decision makers in the federal government accountable for assessing and avoiding potential impacts to the San Pedro River watershed and the unparalleled diversity of life it supports. Help us to keep local officials accountable as well by taking action now!
