Flagstaff City Hall (Rt 66 side)
STAND WITH US FOR RESPECT & HEALTHY COMMUNITIES!
Bring Banners, Signs & Drums! (this will be during part of the City's Earth Day event)
Due to the recent critical threat of desecration of the Holy San Francisco Peaks everyone is invited to join in protest.
"Backed by the US Forest Service & City of Flagstaff, Arizona Snowbowl threatens expansion by clear-cutting over 30,000 trees, and laying 14.8 miles of pipeline to transport 180 millions gallons of treated sewage water (per year) filled with harmful contaminants, to spray on the sensitive mountain eco-system of the San Francisco Peaks.
The Peaks are help holy by more than 13 Indigenous Nations.
