Project Title:
Protect Mojave Desert’s Sacred Springs
California Wildlands Rapid Response Fund, 2019
Sacramento and San Bernardino Counties.
Project Description:

To bring tribal voices and organizations to support protection for groundwater in the Cadiz and Fenner Basins through advocacy, outreach, and and media efforts. NALC will provide additional support and education in Sacramento to ensure decision makers understand the importance of the Cadiz Water Mining Project to tribes, and that tribal resources and values are considered by State officials who are unfamiliar with the region, yet will be casting votes to decide SB 307 in the coming months. By focusing on support for stronger California agency role in groundwater protection, NALC will aim to protect springs, seeps, and groundwater from destructive groundwater pumping projects in Mojave Trails National Monument and Mojave National Preserve.
