Bison in the Hoodoos, Wild Horses in the Lavender Buttes

46.9790° N, 103.5387° W

Kingbirds, wild horses, kestrels, elk, tiger salamanders, red-tailed hawks, mule deer and pronghorns inhabit the land, water and air of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. But they do not understand this designation, or that they park they inhabit belongs to Little Missouri Grassland. They do not know that 10,000 feet beneath their habitat are layers of dolomite and shale, and that this is where petroleum can be sourced.

Tom Builds a Skateboarding Cooperative and Community In Fargo

Tom Kemmer builds beautiful handmade skateboards at his tiny shop Kemmco Cruisers. But he’s built so much more than that where he lives in Fargo, North Dakota. He and a handful of skate enthusiasts spent 6 months building a skateboarding cooperative called The Hawk’s Nest. Tom Kemmer, Ryan Turner, Mark Leski, Steve Bohr and others work together to continuously refine the cooperative and expand their community. Tom’s philosophy: “All are welcome.”
