I am a retired biology teacher and am well aware of the need to educate the populace of Pa. about the serious impact climate change is having on our planet. I have talked with and heard professionals from Penn Future present excellent factual programs about the changes that have already taken place among the flora and fauna of Pa. and the news is not good. As stewards of this earth we all have a stake in reducing carbon emissions to prevent further damage to our air, water and wildlife and Penn Future is one organization that is both educating and speaking out to our legislators.
It's not the fact that our climate is changing, it's how fast it's changing - it's past time for people to wake up to that fact!

I love to visit the Laurel Highlands, especially in the winter. The air is so clean over the snow.
I realize that this environment is being threatened by our bad habits.
We desperately need an organization like PennFuture to help us live well.

My PennFuture coworkers make up the overall smartest group with which I've ever worked. I'm awed every day and have stayed with PennFuture longer than I've worked with any other organization. I honestly believe we're doing good work and we all really care about the work we do.

I have been working with PennFuture on Marcellus Shale drilling issues in Pa and in partnership with the E.L.Rose Conservancy of Susquehanna County. Their staff is extremely knowledgable and helpful, and training workshops I have attended are very informative. I really appreciate how hard they are working to try to strengthen legislation and protect our environment, health and quality of life from the hazards of this gas drilling frenzy. i support their work 100%.

PennFuture is the most effective and hard-hitting environmental organization in Pennsylvania. PennFuture focuses on delivering on its promises and in telling our citizens the truth. Consequently, I choose to donate my hard-earned dollars back into the organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing citizens in their communities win legal challenges against polluters, meeting with legislators to make positive changes in Pennsylvania legislation, and in seeing more clean and renewable energy deployed in the Commonwealth.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Grow it so that it has offices throughout all corners of Pennsylvania!

PennFuture has been a great help to The Western Clinton Sportsmen's Association, Renovo, PA as WCSA pushes for legislation to save Pennsylvania's state forest system from being turned into a Cash Cow by selling leases to companies drilling in the Marcellus Shale Formation.PennFuture's Responsible Drilling Campaign is right on target.

When I contact them they always get back to me, even though we are sort of out here in "the sticks."

ramp up its efforts to save Pennsylvania's state forest system from excessive drilling operations due to the Marcellus Shale bonanza now going on.

I have been a member of "PennFuture" for over 10 years. They put on quality educational conferences all over the State of Pennsylvania. Their staff is excellent, professional, low key and highly effective. Their legal staff is very accessible, cooperative and always busy protectin the environment and the wellbeing of the Citizens of our state. To my knowledge, their funding and administrative reputation is "squeaky clean". I am proud to be a member of Penn Future and would recommend membership to any socially and environmentally responsible citizen of Pennsylvania
