Letter: Keep beauty, historical integrity of Killdeer Mountains

We appreciate the many benefits oil development has brought to our area.

We're also concerned about the relentlessness and rapidity of the development, especially when it threatens areas precious to all North Dakotans. The Killdeer Mountains, which include both private and public lands, are among those areas.

We invite everyone who cares about the Killdeer Mountains to join the Killdeer Mountain Alliance.

"The Killdeer Mountain Alliance exists to preserve the cultural, spiritual, ecological, archaeological and historical integrity of the Killdeer Mountains of western North Dakota and protect them from industrial development that harms the American Indian sites, plant and wildlife habitat, ranching, hunting, tourism, scenic beauty and recreation for which the Killdeer Mountains are known and loved."

If you agree with the mission statement and want to add your voice to protecting the Killdeer Mountains, please contact us.
