" Broken Wing" a flight for survival
This year we are very fortunate to be able to work with so many wildlife specialists from a broad spectrum of federal and state agencies committed to saving the Piping Plover, a small shorebird who visits the sandy shores of the Mighty Missouri River in the spring.
In March 2018 the kids went to work on a short documentary. The 18-minute film shares some of the Plover's History. A super big thanks to our conservation peeps, Us. Army Corp of Engineers, ND Game & Fish, U.S. Fish & Wildlife, U.S. Department of Agriculture. Your stories and your work make our dreams bigger.
One more special thank you for our favorite outdoor journalist, Brian Gehring. Your words in print, your visits, and passion for the outdoors inspire us. Thank you, Lori and the Kids
