Taking Steps to a Renewable Future

From March 17-20, hundreds walked from Windsor to Northfield following roads near the proposed route of the pipeline. Exactly a month after completed our 53-mile walk, Kinder Morgan suspended the pipeline.

We walked to increase public awareness of the pipeline and the impact of fracked gas everywhere. We walked to highlight the catastrophic consequences of continued fossil fuel use on global climate change. We walked to strengthen our connection to the land and to each other.
