What’s the big deal about the Regional Haze Rule?

Hello! As the new Head Mom for Colorado Moms Know Best, I’m so excited to combine my passion for ensuring my daughter’s bright future with my desire to protect our healthy environment and clean air so she can run, jump and play outside. We’ll have lots of upcoming events where we can network, have some fun and make a difference together – starting less than week from today.

On June 1st – just in time for the National Park Service’s 100 year anniversary – join moms like you to make our voices heard on strengthening the Regional Haze Rule.

Believe it or not, loopholes in the rule lead to harmful air pollution in Rocky Mountain National Park and other parks that rivals the poor air quality in major cities like L.A. and Denver. Thankfully, the Obama Administration has proposed changes that will restore natural air quality to national parks and wilderness areas. 

If you’re like me and are taking your kids to visit a national park this summer, I know you’ll want to know that your family is breathing clean, healthy air.  

But the Regional Haze Rule changes are not a slam dunk: the EPA needs to hear from the public – concerned parents like us – before deciding whether to finalize them.

Join me to speak out in support of these rules on June 1st starting at 9 a.m. at the EPA regional office at 1595 Wynkoop Street in Denver.  

Please help us clean up the pollution in our parks. For more information, check out the National Parks Conservation Association’s website then email me at comomsknowbest@gmail.com to let me know if you can join me at the hearing.

Hope to see you there!
