The Wakaruska wetlands are a crucial part of Native American heritage, and many Indians consider it sacred ground. It is one of the most biodiverse places in the Midwest for its size. Our community needs to come together to save this natural and historical treasure for future generations.

We are about to begin a federal appeal process to contest the US District court's ruling that KDOT's Environmental Impact Statement for the SLT is adequate for protecting the wetlands. Participating in a rally to call attention to the appeal process and our continued commitment to preserving this sacred place are the Haskell Wetlands Preservation Organization, Kansas Sierra Club, Jayhawk Audubon Society, University of Kansas EcoJustice, Save the Wakarusa Wetlands, Inc., KU Environs, the KU Indigenous Nations Studies Student Association, and many more student and community groups from HINU, KU, and Lawrence--including you and yours!!

Come out to 31st Street, between Haskell and Louisiana, on Thursday, March 31st from 4-6pm to say NO to SLT and YES to wetlands and community. Media contacts welcome as well.
