Keeping All the Pieces – A Documentary Film

Keeping All the Pieces is an outreach campaign and a 15-minute documentary film that promotes conversations about the public lands of western North Dakota known as the Badlands. The campaign aims to raise awareness about the impacts of oil and gas development while inspiring further self-education and advocacy. The future of the Badlands should be a decision made by the public, not by the oil industry. What is the best way for North Dakota to wisely develop our oil and gas resources while maintaining the environmental health of our deeply valued natural and agricultural landscapes? This is the question Keeping All the Pieces seeks to answer by forming a partnership between residents of North Dakota and advocates of conservation and wildlife.

The Western Meadowlark is the state bird of North Dakota. Like the human cultures that have grown on the landscape for millennia, the wildlife and natural ecosystem have depended on native tall grass prairie. Today, it’s nearly all gone from the state. Soon, the meadowlark may be too. (Published by Sandbagger News on February 9, 2016)
