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.
I appreciate the professional way that PennFuture goes about communicating with elected representatives. I also appreciate the way they make good use of volunteers' time by calling us in to participate in specific meetings and hearings where they think we can make a difference.
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
