Heal the Land, Work for Our Future: A Mine Reclamation Action
Join us this June 17-19 as we take direct action to stop tar sands mining in Utah and work to heal the land. With seeds, shovels, and hands we will rewild a site that had been condemned to fossil fuel development. Come regrow the mine June 17-19!

May 12th @12pm – BLM: Keep It In The Ground!
Location: Holiday Inn Denver Lakewood (7390 West Hampden Ave., Lakewood, CO 80227)
This country is at a crossroads – we can either continue auctioning off public lands for fracking, or we can decide to keep over half of fossil fuels in the US underground forever. The Bureau of Land Management intends to auction off our public lands to oil and gas companies, and the movement intends to be there to tell them to keep it in the ground!
May 14, 2016 @sunrise – Frontline Fracking Defense
Parking: Wagon Road Park n’ Ride (600 W 120th Ave, Westminster, CO 80003).
Location: **We will transport you to the event site (public open space land adjacent to proposed industrial-sized fracking site in a neighborhood. We are keeping the exact location confidential for now.)
Time: Greet the dawn with us at 6am if possible, or join us anytime that day.
Bring: all your supplies to stay for awhile: water, snacks, sunscreen, blankets, shade, musical instruments, signs about Breaking Free from Fossil Fuels, family and friends!
