Protecting the Waters and Penokee Hills Walk (05/21/2011)

Saturday, May 21 area residents gathered to walk the the site that is proposed for an open pit mine by Gogebic Taconite Company (GTac). This site is located at the headwaters of the Bad River Watershed. GTac has promoted their mining development in the state capitol,  Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC), and supporters of GTac's proposal to change Wisconsin's mining laws. The walkers were joined by Fox 21 news Duluth, participated in ceremonies, and enjoyed a picnic lunch, a talking circle and a visit from a very young woodcock.
