Sierra Keystone Conversations




Conservation

The NE Sierra Club is individuals and small groups that work together to protect our environment. Your local group is a 100% volunteer organization - no paid staff. We serve 11 counties in NEPA. All local action on behalf of the Sierra club is because a member like you decided that environmental issues are too important to ignore. They've given their time to change things. Nothing happens unless local members are interested and willing to put time and energy into issues.

To help out, please contact activism @ nesierra.org

    • Marcellus Shale Drilling - Avenues for Action: Regional advocacy workshops

      As drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale continues in our region and across Pennsylvania, PennFuture, Clean Water Action, PennEnvironment, Pennsylvania Sierra Club, Responsible Drilling Alliance and EARTHWORKS are holding an invitation-only strategy session to discuss the avenues and opportunities for action in 2011.

      At these sessions, you will:

    • Hear from top environmental advocates about the political landscape in 2011.
    • Review the legislative avenues for action at the state and federal levels.
    • Learn more about drilling on state lands, the drilling tax, protections of our water, bonding, enforcement, and other issues confronting Pennsylvania.
    • Learn more about wastewater treatment, compressor stations, municipal zoning authority, and the issues facing your local community.
    • Find out how to be involved in local citizen monitoring and visual assessment efforts.
    • The events are free, but pre-registration is required.

      We can't do this without you! Join us at an event near you!
