Black Hills Energy Donates $25K To Booth Society, Inc.

Black Hills Energy recently donated $25,000 to the Booth Society, Inc. – the nonprofit group that supports the D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Archives in Spearfish, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The donation supports the Booth Society’s campaign to help finance the purchase of a land parcel adjacent to the hatchery for future expansion.

Black Hills Energy’s mission is to improve life with energy, and Marc Eyre, BHE’s manager of electric operations said that this campaign was an opportunity for the business to partner with the Booth Society, which is “a great asset to the community” of Spearfish and the greater Black Hills region as a whole.

The Booth Society Executive Director, Karen Holzer, thanked Black Hills Energy for its support. According to her, conserving the adjacent property will benefit the hatchery and the larger community by providing options for expansion, adding wildlife habitat, protecting the surrounding watershed and supply, and protecting the historic value of the hatchery by preventing the development of the adjacent land.
