North Dakota

Measure 5 for Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks

North Dakotans love the outdoors. We take great pride in our wide-open spaces. Many of us live in North Dakota because of its incredible and unique landscapes, its boundless sky, its diverse prairie and clear lakes and its abundance of wildlife. The rich natural resources are part of our our heritage and a legacy we want to pass on to our children.

To protect our way of life in North Dakota, The Nature Conservancy and a coalition of partners in North Dakota worked hard to pass the Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks measure.  

It would have helped:

  • Protect clean water in our rivers, lakes and steams
  • Improve natural flood control by protecting and restoring natural areas
  • Protect fish and wildlife populations
  • Create parks and other areas for outdoor recreation

It would not have increased your taxes nor would it have taken away funding from local communities most affected by the oil boom.

While Measure 5 did not pass, we want to thank you for all you do to support The Nature Conservancy. We hope you’ll join us in the months and years ahead as we work to help protect North Dakota’s lands, waters and wildlife.  

To inspire you, we created a slideshow of some of North Dakota’s most spectacular lands and waters including the Badlands and Devils Lake.

Thanks for your help!
