A New Year's message from STIR President Denise Deason-Toyne...(posted 12/27/16)
|Are Scenic Rivers Headed for Big Changes?
This was a big year for Oklahoma Scenic Rivers and 2017 promises more
change. The federal Clean Water Act and rules to protect the Illinois
River may be targeted by those who think dirty water is alright. No
longer is there a state agency whose only duty is to protect scenic
Save the Illinois River is still here. Since
1984, STIR has been the strongest, non-governmental, conservation
organization advocating for protection of the Illinois River, its
tributaries and Lake Tenkiller.
In order to meet our mission, we seek your continued support.
Please join or renew your STIR membership for 2017 and encourage others
to join. Oklahoma’s Scenic Rivers and Lake Tenkiller need your help
just as much, if not more, than ever before.
