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. Contact Governor Cooper

The current Wake Stone quarry adjacent to Umstead State Park had their original Mining Permit 92‐10 approved in 1981 with a 50-year Sunset Clause. After 50 years, in 2031, Wake Stone was to donate the land to the State and all mining operations would cease. The Sunset Clause — promised to Umstead State Parks and the public and agreed to by Wake Stone Corporation — needs to be reinstated.  NC State Parks has asked Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to give them back the Sunset Clause.  Please ask Governor Cooper to reinstate the Sunset Clause. Learn more and submit your comments now>>
