Methow Headwaters

“A Canadian mining company wants to conduct exploratory drilling for copper at the headwaters of the Methow River. This is the story of a mountain community coming together to share why the Methow Valley, in the heart of the North Cascades, is too special to mine. “It’s become a more unique place the more it’s stayed the same,” says local farmer Sam Lucy. “Right?” The Methow Headwaters Campaign is working to secure a mineral withdrawal and permanently protect the Methow from the threat of industrial-scale mining.”
