Norbeck Wildlife Area (NO Logging)

Norbeck Wildlife Before and After

The images are before and after photos of the Norbeck Wildlife area where there is to be NO logging or any kind of motorized vehicles according to 2 federal laws. As you can see, the US Forest Service has thought differently. This is why we keep proposing the Okawita Paha National Park managed by the National Park Service so this kind of destruction will not happen.

These are only 2 of hundreds of spots that are currenty being logged.

Mission Statement

"Defenders of the Black Hills is a group of volunteers without racial or tribal boundaries whose mission is to preserve, protect, and restore the environment of the 1851 and 1868 Treaty Territories, Treaties made between the United States and the Great Sioux Nation."

Speaking about radioactive fallout, the late President John F. Kennedy said,

"Even then, the number of children and grandchildren with cancer in their bones, with leukemia in their blood, or with poison in their lungs might seem statistically small to some, in comparison with natural health hazards. But this is not a natural health hazard and it is not a statistical issue. The loss of even one human life, or the malformation of even one baby who may be born long after we are gone, should be of concern to us all. Our children and grandchildren are not merely statistics toward which we can be indifferent."
