The Teven Tintenbar community is reeling from a proposal to build a toxic asphalt plant in this fragile valley. They need support with letters and also with donations to their fighting fund if you can. 

The proposed site is in a rural zoning surrounded by agricultural lands – a totally inappropriate location for such intensive and dangerous industrial activity. Our green belts are vital for the future of nature-based tourism.
