Arctic - Will You Be My National Monument?
Sign up to host and receive this free poster!Fifty years ago, President Eisenhower was the first President to be so taken by the beauty of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge that he protected the area for future generations. Since then, others have come to value the beauty, strength and wilderness of the same lands. Don’t you think this calls for a 50th anniversary party?

To celebrate our unwavering commitment to the Refuge, we are calling upon President Obama to strengthen the protections for this coastal plain. By naming the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge a National Monument, safeguarding it wildlife value and wildness. President Obama will add a layer of protections from oil and gas drilling. After 50 years together, this is the least we can do.

Will you help by throwing a fantastic 50th anniversary party? We have a lifetime of memories with the "biological heart" of Alaska and will together tell President Obama to make a long lasting commitment to a place we love.
