Dear Supporter,

It's time to close the door on the Eagle Mountain Landfill once and for all!

The proposed landfill would be the nation's largest dump, surrounded on three sides by Joshua Tree National Park wilderness. If allowed to proceed, this project would harm wilderness canyons, air and water quality, and the quality of life for the park's gateway communities. It would also harm iconic and threatened species like golden eagles, desert bighorn sheep, and desert tortoises.

Despite NPCA's long fight and recent legal victories, developers are trying to keep this misguided project alive. As we approach the park's 75th anniversary, NPCA is committed to stopping this plan. With your help, we'll let the Department of the Interior know that the best birthday present for Joshua Tree National Park is to say "Not here, not ever!" to the Eagle Mountain Landfill.

Take Action: Tell Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar that we must not trash Joshua Tree. The nation's largest dump does not belong next door to this national treasure.

Thank you for speaking up for Joshua Tree--one of our nation's most precious and unique places. Your continued interest in protecting all of our national parks is greatly appreciated!
