Western Watersheds Project opposes the construction of the proposed China Mountain Wind Project in Twin Falls County, Idaho and Elko County, Nevada. This industrial wind development would destroy one of the last strongholds of Sage grouse in southwest Idaho and northern Nevada that provides critical habitat and connectivity between key populations of Sage grouse as well as many other species of native wildlife.
WWP encourages readers to email comments to the Bureau of Land Management by July 6 expressing the following:
Please email your comments to email@example.com with "China Mountain Wind Project" as the subject line.
Thank You !

In support of alternative energy, Western Watersheds Project will encourage RES Americas to relocate its proposed China Mountain project to already disturbed and degraded private agricultural lands in Nevada and Idaho that provide equally valuable wind resources without destroying critically needed wildlife habitat on public lands.
