Another way to support the efforts of our group is to read through the principles of environmental justice and the accompanying letter created by the Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve.  We believe that the main tenets of environmental justice have been violated throughout the entire process thus far. Attached to this post are accompanying materials such as petition sheets for those interested in collecting. Please be sure to send them back to:
