Oak Flat has supporters in every corner, as evidenced by the quick response from those planning to collect signatures for the forest service public comment period. The public comment period is short – just 60 days – and clearly it’s not just Arizonans who are committed to save Oak Flat.
The leadership of the Walks to Save Oak Flat in Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Seattle are planning to gather signatures in their cities.
Joining the effort are families and friends of Oak Flat in Fort Collins, CO; Phoenix, AZ; Tucson, AZ; Austin, TX, and Kona, HI.
We’ve yet to hear from the midwest and east coast. Who will collect signatures for Oak Flat in those regions? If you can spend a day tabling an event at a local Earth Day fair, we’ll help you get organized and give you the materials you need.
Earth Day is just around the corner – April 22 – and lots of environmental fairs provide great opportunities to set up a booth and gather comment cards.
