Citizens, landowners, ranchers, farmers, cheese makers and tankers are all coming together to honor State Senator Ken Haar for his work protecting the Ogallala Aquifer. Sen. Haar was the force behind a Special Session on the pipeline and continues to make sure the proper laws get put in place to protect our land and water.
Now it's time for the Pipeline Fighters and the Sandhills Lovers to stand with Sen. Haar.
