Forested recreation in the heart of the Triangle 

What You Can Do

Our voices matter. We can stop RDU Quarry. 

Wake Stone Quarry, Cary, NC

1. Submit Written Comments to DEQ

You can submit written comments to DEQ until a "Decision" has been made to approve or deny the permit. They're expected to make a decision around mid-February 2021. Submit your comments now>>

2. Contact Public Officials

Local public officials have the power to stop the quarry and the fence. You can email Governor Cooper and local elected officials asking for the 50-year Sunset Clause to be reinstated and to deny the new mining permit for the Odd Fellows Tract. We've created talking points and an easy way for you to contact everyone at one time here. Submit your comments now>>
