Environmentalists Continue Fight Against Sand Mine

Posted by wlpo on October 26, 2012

There’s a rally planned Sunday at Starved Rock State Park and it doesn’t involve an election.

The Sierra Club of Illinois is rallying against the proposed sand mine near the east entrance of Starved Rock.  Sierra Club members will lead guided hikes of the park, take a tour of the proposed land for the sand mine and finish Sunday afternoon at Grand Bear Lodge with guest speakers.

The Sierra Club has been against the proposed Mississippi Sand project from the very beginning.  They even brought in Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon to try and slow down the project.
