Opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline are celebrating the completion of a barn that was built to stand in the pathway of the proposed pipeline.
Organizers planned several events Sunday to thank volunteers as well as to mark the completion of the solar- and wind-powered barn.
Groups behind the barn build say the barn
will serve as a gathering place to learn about sustainable energy
alternatives that would benefit agriculture.
If President Barack Obama
approves a federal permit for the oil pipeline, opponents say the barn's
location also would force pipeline developer TransCanada to either reroute
the Keystone XL or destroy the barn.
