Danger! Legislature in Session!

Here is an easy way to communicate with your legislators.

 

Earth Day

Saturday, April 12, 2014, 10AM - 4 PM The Yavapai Group booth will feature the “String of Pearls,” a series of natural areas between the Granite Creek Basin and the headwaters of the Verde River. We need volunteers to help with setup (9 am) and take down (4 pm). And, we need volunteers to help staff the booth (2 hr shift between 10 am and 4 pm) on the Courthouse Plaza in Prescott. This is a great chance to chat with lots of nice conservation-minded folk and learn more about local issues. To volunteer, drop us an email.

Iron King Mine/Humboldt Superfund Site

The EPA has released an important document describing the problem and additional field studies planned to complete the cleanup investigation. In general, the issue is that Arsenic, a very dangerous carcinogenic pollutant, is found in soils and water supplies in the area. See the November 2013 report.

 

Wilderness Act 50th Anniversary

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. We will be offering outings to visit most of the 19 Wilderness Areas in Yavapai County. Download our new outings schedule.


ExComm Agenda & Minutes

The Yavapai Group Executive Committee (ExComm) is now posting our meeting agenda and minutes on this web site. This is a great way for members to track what we do.
