MineWatch June Meeting 2021 - Precious Headwaters


Precious Headwaters: Potential Impacts of the Idaho Maryland Mine to the Plants, Animals and Aquatic Habitats of the Wolf Creek Watershed

This virtual community meeting was hosted by CEA Foundation and community partners - including the Redbud Chapter of the California Native Plant Society - on June 24, 2021.


Special guest speakers for this session were Gary Griffith, Wolf Creek Community Alliance, and Jeanne Wilson, Redbud Chapter of the California Native Plant Society.


The Brunswick and Centennial sites of the proposed Idaho Maryland Mine project encompass ten native plant communities, from montane hardwood and Sierra mixed conifer to annual grasslands, from marsh wetlands to chaparral. Far from being a wasteland despoiled by over 100 years of mining, these sites demonstrate the resilience and critical ecological functions of the native plant communities, wildlife, and aquatic habitat of the Wolf Creek headwaters.


Topics covered:

  • Potential impacts of the mine on stream ecology and on avian and other wildlife species.

  • Why native plant communities are essential to the health and survival of the Wolf Creek watershed

  • What YOU can do to STOP the Mine.
