Join Us for a Waterside Chat about Bristol Bay and Pebble Mine

Fly-fishing in Bristol Bay

Join us Wednesday, May 25th at 3:00 p.m. ET for a live online update on efforts to protect Bristol Bay and to stop the proposed Pebble Mine. The Network’s Tom Sadler will host this latest edition of our ongoing Waterside Chat series. Sign up now for this free event.

Sam Snyder of the Wild Salmon Center and Scott Hed with Businesses for Bristol Bay will chat with Tom about what you can do to help protect this iconic watershed and the most important wild salmon fisheries on the planet. Sam and Scott will tell us about the latest efforts to encourage the EPA to use its authority under the Clean Water Act to protect Bristol Bay from Pebble Mine.

Sam and Scott will share:

  • the background on the Bristol Bay watershed,
  • the threat posed by the proposed Pebble Mine,
  • what actions have taken place to protect Bristol Bay,
  • what the EPA is doing now, and
  • most importantly, what actions you can take to help.

EPA is expected to take action at the end of the month so this will be an important and timely talk. Learn more on our Bristol Bay resource page.
