Save Bryce Canyon National Park from Coal Mining!

Bryce Canyon is an amazing place!   The shapes, colors and striations are simply awe-inspiring.  Interestingly enough, Bryce isn’t an actual canyon, but the place is a national treasure all the same.  Bryce also happens to be one of the single best locations in the Continental U.S. for stargazing and anything astronomy-related.  This is due to the Park’s location far away from any major light pollution sources, and its impeccably clean and dry air quality.  Unfortunately, much of what is impressive about Bryce could be jeopardized by an unnecessary venture to allow a 3,500 acre coal mine within 10 miles of the park’s boundaries.  Sign this petition demanding that the Bureau of Land Management to stop this mine!  (and enjoy some pictures from a recent visit below)
