Families, farmers, and landowners oppose the creation of new oil pipeline

The Carlton County Land Stewards is made up of a grassroots group of families, farmers, landowners, and individuals that oppose the creation of this pipeline.

The Land Stewards are not standing by and watching. In response, they are holding a series of letter writing open houses. The goal is to collect comments for the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission. The open houses will feature informal information sessions, as well as step-by-step instructions, giving citizens a forum where their voices can be heard.

You are invited to join at any of the following open houses where the plan to implement the pipeline will be discussed:

November 10: St Andrews by the Lake, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
