ACRES OF THE MAT-SU TARGETED FOR COAL MINING Multi-national coal companies are lining up to turn the Mat-Su into the next Appalachia. Banks are denying loans, and our property, health, hunting and recreation areas are at risk.

But you have the power to stop it! Ask questions. Share your concerns with neighbors.

Visit matvalley.org to get the facts and tell local leaders that our community is not the right place to put three coal mines. Visit us at the State Fair – we can be found on the Purple Trail, Booth 33. PAGE 2 Page 2
