Western Mining Action Network and Indigenous Environmental Network approved a $3000 grant from YDWP to assist in funding our water chemistry program. This money will go directly to the analysis of water samples in the Yellow Dog and Salmon-Trout River watersheds for low level micro-analysis. “We want to have the best baseline information regarding current water quality conditions as a preventitive measure against degradation in any form,” said Emily Whittaker, Executive Director of YDWP. WMAN has long supported the mission of our group and helps others facing a prospective mining plan in their community. YDWP thanks WMAN very much for their support!
