Plans to build a wind turbine farm at Brightenber Hill, near West Marton, will be thrashed out at a series of public meetings.
The newly-formed Friends of Craven Landscape group, set up to fight the proposals, is due to hold meetings in West Marton, Coniston Cold, Hellifield and Gargrave next month.
German-owned company EnergieKontor was given temporary three-year permission earlier this month to put up a 60m (200ft) test mast at the site.
It has said it plans to submit an application later this year for five turbines on the site.
A spokesman for the Friends of Craven Landscape said: “The developers have tightly controlled information on this project and it’s worrying how few people know about it. We mean to fill the information gap.”
Meetings are due to take place at Hellifield Institute Hall on Tuesday May 13 from 8pm; West Marton Village Hall on Wednesday May 14 from 8pm, Coniston Cold Village Hall, before the annual general meeting, on Thursday May 15 from 7pm, and at Gargrave Village Hall on Tuesday May 20 from 8pm.
