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.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

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

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The anti environmental polarization fostered in the media and in state and federal legislative bodies by Corporate America especially fromm sectors of the economy related to the fossil fuels lobbies

Keep u[p the good work, PennFuture
