Actress Yvonne Strahovski (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) joined a Sierra Club Outing to Grand Canyon region this weekend with her husband, actor Tim Loden, to experience the wonder of Arizona’s immense national park and to see first-hand the need to permanently protect it.

“I want my child to be able to explore the wonders of Grand Canyon without the threat of toxic uranium pollution nearby,” said Strahovski, who is currently pregnant with her first child. “Being out in the wild had a profound impact on my upbringing and helped form who I am today. These majestic places should be protected and accessible to everyone.”

An avid outdoorswoman, Strahovski is a Sierra Club Ambassador who grew up in Australia spending considerable time in the wild climbing, canyoning, and caving. Two years ago, she vowed to reconnect with nature and has been traveling extensively throughout the U.S. exploring our national parks and public lands, which she often documents on her personal Instagram account.

Right now, attempts are underway to allow dangerous uranium and other mining on the public lands surrounding Grand Canyon. There are temporary protections in place that need to be made permanent in order to protect surrounding communities and waterways from radioactive contamination. Our public lands should be protected for public enjoyment and recreation, not sold off to the dirty energy industry.

Grand Canyon is the crown jewel of America’s national park system. It is vital to the economy, supports jobs and provides an outdoor experience and connection to nature unlike any other.
