Our campaign to protect the magnificent Medicine Lake Highlands & vital aquifer from industrial geothermal development works through a legal, political and scientific strategy to achieve cultural landscape preservation and source water protection. This grant will support our work with the Stanford Clinic on the legal challenge to our coalition’s earlier court victory, an education campaign, pursue two avenues to gain state and federal recognition of the unprotected aquifer, and continue long-term protection efforts with tribal and alliance partners through the Forest Plan Revision process.
