“Many hands make light work.” I must have heard my mother say that phrase a thousand times when I was growing up in Slope County. It is a phrase that often comes to me when I’m pondering the work that BCA faces. Although we face great challenges and interact with entities much larger and better funded, we are stronger with each and every member. In addition to your individual memberships, critical to the organization, what BCA needs most is for individuals to step forward and serve on the board, and the board’s committees. I hope this is something you will consider as BCA marks the 20th anniversary of its founding. Putting your “hands” to the tasks will indeed make “light” the work we face.

In the past few months, BCA has submitted comments on the LMNG SEIS and the illegal bridge. Additionally, the board has put in many additional hours in handling matters related to the transition of staff. It was good to see so many of you at Jan’s reception.

If you haven’t already, I urge you to follow BCA on social media for the latest updates. We will continue to send periodic emails to members. Do let us know if you are not receiving these and wish to. BCA@BadlandsConservationAlliance.org is our address.

My deepest personal thank you to Jan Swenson, who has so tirelessly served as Executive Director all these years. We wish her all the best in her well-deserved retirement.

See you on the trail!

Lillian Crook, President
