Protect Minidoka National Historic Site

In 1942, the U.S. government forcibly removed 13,000 Japanese Americans from the Pacific Northwest to what was known as Minidoka War Relocation Camp in rural south-central Idaho. Today, a proposed wind farm next to Minidoka National Historic Site could potentially create a visual wall of hundreds of wind towers and irrevocably change the landscape that still conveys the isolation experienced by Japanese Americans incarcerated there.

Join the National Trust, Friends of Minidoka, and other partners in urging the Bureau of Land Management to either deny the permit application or reduce the number of turbines to protect and respect Minidoka National Historic Site and the Japanese American experience.
