Called “For the Love of the Beartooths,” the mixer will be held at the Fieldhouse Cafe in Billings, 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,” an NPRC 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 or call 248-1154.

The Moses family has lived on the Stillwater River since 1974, when George and Lucile Moses retired and moved to the Beehive from the Twin Cities. They’re gone now, but their four daughters (pictured at left, on the Beehive) and their families continue to spend time there, and have grown to love the area. This blog started as an email chain to keep the family informed about the threat of increased fracking activity in the area, but the desire to inform and get involved led to the creation of this blog.
