Help Us Conserve Pennsylvania
Protecting the health and safety of the Commonwealth and its people.
We’re all living through a crucial moment. The actions we take today will determine the state of Pennsylvania’s environment for generations to come.
Pennsylvania is one of the world’s worst emitters of the pollution responsible for global warming, and three out of four of the Commonwealth’s hunters and anglers say that they can already see its effects.
Meanwhile, gas drilling companies from across the world are flocking to Pennsylvania to take advantage of the natural gas in the Marcellus Shale formation beneath the state. As thousands of new wells are drilled around Pennsylvania, the dangerous “fracking” process threatens to poison the drinking water from Erie to Mt. Airy.
Finally, with stark shortfalls in the state budget, key environmental protection programs are at risk, just as they’re needed most.
There are a lot of challenges coming, but there is a simple solution: educated, engaged citizens who know what they want and are willing to speak out. Conservation Pennsylvania exists to give those citizens the tools and the knowledge they need to put the Commonwealth on the right track.
