Environmental Health Outreach Program Report (2014)

EH-Report-cover_4webThis ten-page report outlines goals, activities, and lessons learned from The Sierra Fund’s 1-year pilot outreach program about environmental health threats associated with abandoned mines.

Goals of the program were to prevent and reduce exposure to mercury from locally caught fish in Sierra communities; to raise awareness about mercury in the fish and other mine-related toxins, among community members, leaders, and healthcare providers; and to build a movement to clean up sources of legacy mining pollution in the Sierra.
