The Northern Plains Resource Council will hold a mixer Thursday evening to talk about efforts to prevent oil and gas development in the Beartooth Front.

Called “For the Love of the Beartooths,” the mixer will be held at the Fieldhouse Cafe, 2601 Minnesota Ave., from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday. An RSVP and a donation of at least $10 are encouraged.

The meeting is prompted by concerns over possible fracking in the Beartooth mountains.

“We are determined to defend the Beartooth Front from irresponsible oil and gas development that would deplete water supply, pollute groundwater and spoil the beauty of the place we love,” a Northern Plains statement said.

The meeting will include information on what other communities in the area are doing, speakers, how locals can get involved, appetizers and a cash bar.

To RSVP or for more information, email Alicia Pettys at alicia@northernplains.org or call 248-1154.
