Protect the Chilkat

The proposed Palmer Mine — which would be located at the headwaters of the Chilkat River, just upstream of the Chilkat Indian Village of Klukwan and community of Haines — seeks to profit from Alaska’s mineral resources at the expense of our fish, wildlife, water quality, and ways of life. Here you can learn more and take action.
