We’ve been following the proposed Crazy Mountain Wind Farm, which would have impacted area residents, wildlife, and businesses, and are relieved to see that this project seems to have been tabled indefinitely. We’re concerned, however, that the project may resurface—or that others like it will be proposed in sensitive areas of Park and Sweet Grass Counties.
With that in mind, we’re planning a movie night at the Livingston Public Library. The movie we’ll be showing is “Windfall.” This documentary tells the story of a community in upstate New York that initially welcomes the idea of wind energy, but ultimately opposes the development of a wind farm in its neighborhood. The trailer can be seen on youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBYjZG8O6qE
Ross Crandall, research biologist at Craighead Beringia South, will give a brief talk on the area’s importance for nesting golden eagles, and the adverse effects that wind farms have on these magnificent birds. We’re hoping that a lively discussion will follow the showing of the film.
We invite you to join us on July 12th at 6:00 pm at the Livingston Park County Public Library Steveson Room downstairs for our showing of “Windfall.”
