On Tuesday, June 18th, 2013, Clean Water Action will hold our annual Lobby Day at the state capitol in Harrisburg. Come lobby with us! The day will consist of the opportunity to meet with your state senator and representative as well as taking part in our rally for Department of Environmental Protection accountability at noon in the capitol rotunda.
It takes strength in numbers to show our elected officials that the people of Pennsylvania want to be protected from the dangers of fracking and want the Department of Environmental Protection to do its job! Join us!
Here’s a fact: Gas drilling operations and pristine forests don’t go together. Help us protect the Loyalsock State Forest from drilling!
Thanks to their preservation, Pennsylvania state forests like Loyalsock are recreational gems. The Loyalsock State Forest consists of more than 100,000 acres of pristine wilderness. All of that is being threatened as Loyalsock is considered as a site for Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling. Allowing drilling to occur in Loyalsock would fragment the forest, leaving miles of clearings for new roads, pipelines and drill pads.
