The Clarence Moore Lands remain unprotected!
The Clarence Moore lands, 25,000 acres of exquisite natural beauty within the Loyalsock State Forest, offer recreation and respite to those who visit. Here one can hike through tranquil forests on the Old Loggers Path and cool off aside the crystalline waters of Rock Run. Like many of Pennsylvania’s public lands, this area is treasured by those who visit its streams and forests. But unlike the state parks and forests thankfully protected from natural gas development by Governor Wolf’s Executive Order 2015-03, the Clarence Moore lands remain at risk.
As natural gas development sweeps across Pennsylvania, this area of the Loyalsock State Forest represents the last unfragmented forest in Lycoming County. Here forests, bogs and wetlands provide vital habitat to sensitive plant and animal species at risk. Here the National Audubon Society has designated an Important Bird Area. Here gather the headwaters of the Exceptional Value watersheds of Pleasant Stream and Rock Run. There is no room for drilling here in the Clarence Moore lands.
Since 2012 the Save the Loyalsock Coalition, an organization of conservation and outdoor enthusiasts representing over 100,000 citizens, has labored to prevent natural gas development in this forest. On July 14, 2015, the Coalition sent a letter to Governor Wolf reminding him of the keen public interest in the Clarence Moore lands and of the state’s ability to protect this vulnerable area.
Governor Wolf previously indicated his willingness to explore legal options available to prevent drilling in this pristine forest. Now you can help protect this Pennsylvania treasure by signing this petition to Governor Wolf. We will deliver your signature along with the many other thousands who say, “No drilling in the Clarence Moore lands!”
