The Raritan Valley Group of the New Jersey Sierra Club hosts:
Protecting Our National Parks and Monuments

7 p.m.- 8 p.m.
The Heldrich Hotel, 10 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
The Sierra Club's Debbie Young will use videos and discussions to talk about our cherished National Parks and Monuments, why they are important to preserve, and the threats they face from the Trump administration. Trump wants to open up our valuable public lands for private sale, so oil and gas companies can exploit them for profit. Imagine uranium mining just outside of the Grand Canyon. Or oil rigs within the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Or gas drilling at Utah’s Bear’s Ears National Monument, land that is sacred to Native Americans and home to thousands of archaeological sites. Debbie will also talk about how we can help protect them and the actions that she and others are taking with our Representatives and Senators in Congress to preserve these spaces for future generations. Free and open to the public, including non-Sierra Club members. The Raritan Valley Group serves Middlesex and Somerset counties. Attendees can RSVP at tinyurl.com/RVGSpeakerSeries.
