North Dakota

 Vote Yes on 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 are supporting Measure 5 for clean water, wildlife and parks in the state. We need your help to identify voters and get out the vote.

Measure 5 will:

  • 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 will NOT increase your taxes and it will NOT take away funding from local communities most affected by the oil boom.

Washington, D.C.-based lobbyists for multinational oil corporations have spent more than $1 Million to defeat Measure 5. We can fight back by voting Yes.

Without your help, North Dakota will lose a unique opportunity to protect clean water, conserve wildlife habitat and create and improve parks. We need committed citizens, like you, to volunteer to protect what you love about North Dakota.

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