We’re planning a group campout April 11-13 at PR Springs, near the site of the first tar sands mine in the United States, and you’re all invited.
Though we are waiting on a ruling from the Utah Supreme Court on the status of their permits, US Oil Sands, a Canadian tar sands company, received an $80 million investment late last year and they’re gearing up to spend a lot of that in 2014, building infrastructure necessary for their operation, and beginning to remove so-called “overburden” on their strip mine.
Come visit PR Springs before it’s irreparably impacted by this terrible project.
The state of Utah, and US Oil Sands, would have us believe that this area is ugly, useless to anyone but them, and that the only good it can provide is to be used for extraction. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Come connect with the land.
Check out our Connect with the Land page if you have any questions about the camping conditions, or need directions to PR Springs. Other questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
On Facebook? Join the event and invite your friends.
I would like to participate in the camping event next week-end. I would probably be coming with Kathy Albury, who has visited the site in the past. I will check out the details on Connect with the Land. Please let me know if there is still space for me to participate.
I plan to go; do not have a vehicle.
