Northern Thunder is based in western Wisconsin. We are committed to meaningful advocacy and activism to address local and global issues related to human and natural environments.
This grassroots organization was born as a student group with Earth Day in 1970 and organized many actions and projects around environmental issues through 2008. These included successfully opposing several mining projects, peace and justice work, and an award-winning cable television program, TV Notion. Northern Thunder’s most prominent effort was perhaps the creation of WHYS Radio, Eau Claire’s community radio station.
