They brought experienced blind kayaker and military veteran Lonnie Bedwell to the Grand Canyon with four other disabled vets, to make history by so many blind kayakers descending the canyon at once.

By engaging residents and visitors, the project actively removes up to 1 ton of pollution per day.

The state of Alaska is currently considering a 220-mile industrial access road to facilitate construction of a huge open pit copper mine in the roadless and remote Brooks Range.
