Boise River celebration

In July, a court in Boise ruled against the CuMo Exploration Project, which would forever rearrange the Boise River's headwaters and impact water quality throughout the river system and Treasure Valley. And for that, we and our partners at Idaho Conservation League, the Golden Eagle Chapter of the Audubon Society and Advocates for the West are ready to recognize the big winner—and that’s the Boise River and everyone who enjoys it.

American CuMo, the Canadian mining company that hopes to construct one of the largest open-pit mines in the world at the headwaters of the Boise River, needs to recognize that folks care about what happens upstream of our community.

This project will likely come back, but we are taking this opportunity to celebrate and explain about next steps in the process.
