Mar 20: Oil & gas drilling tour of the Allegheny National Forest area

Join us for a tour of oil & gas drilling in and around our public forest lands. See the impacts associated with deep gas drilling (Marcellus Shale) and shallow oil & gas drilling. This is an opportunity to grasp the scale of impacts to our forests first hand.
