(Marienville, PA) March 20, 2010: 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.
The oil & gas sites are along dirt roads in and around public lands areas. Expect a wide range of possible weather conditions from snow to rain. Thaw-like conditions are probable so expect mud. Come dressed for the outdoors for whatever weather is forecast (check weather for Marienville, PA). Bring water and pack a lunch and snacks. Expect to walk a bit. Sites are about 1/4 mile from main road.
To carpool from Pittsburgh meet at the Sierra Club Office in Oakland at 8:45am (Craig Street Side). The Pittsburgh group will be leaving at 9am sharp. Directions: http://tinyurl.com/PGHSierra.
