KEEPING PUBLIC LANDS IN PUBLIC HANDS

North Dakota is home to roughly 4 million acres of public lands and waters. Our national grasslands and other public lands provide invaluable habitat for fish and wildlife and great recreational opportunities for the public.  Unfortunately, special interests are always pushing to open up these lands for development. NDWF works to keep public lands in public hands and not sold off to the highest bidder for unsustainable development.

PROTECTING IMPORTANT LANDS AND WATERS

Fish and wildlife depend on good habitat. NDWF works to protect habitat on our public lands by getting the public involved on federal and state management plans to identify and conserve important wild lands and waters. 

KEEPING ALL THE PIECES

The North Dakota Wildlife Federation (NDWF) and Badlands Conservation Alliance are calling for public input on oil, gas, and energy development in North Dakota. Badlands wildlife and natural resources are important to all outdoor recreationists and our state's outdoor economy. Unchecked oil and gas production has negative impacts to North Dakota's lands and waters, wildlife, and our outdoor heritage.
