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%.
