12 mile hike from Loyalsock State Forest to Senator Yaw’s ofice in Williamsport



I’m beside myself. The thought of beautiful Loyalsock State Forest being chewed up by more gas drilling and pipelines has been haunting me for weeks.

That’s why I’ve decided to hike from Loyalsock State Forest to Chairman Yaw’s office in Williamsport to personally deliver the 10,000 petition signatures we’ve collected calling on the Chairman to hold a hearing about plans for more drilling and to do everything in his power to Keep It Wild.

I’d love it if you could join me for this important endeavor. The trek will be just under 12 miles, from the trailhead in Loyalsock State Forest to Chairman Yaw’s office in Williamsport.

What: March from Loyalsock State Forest to Chairman Yaw’s Williamsport office When: March 25 at 9:00 a.m. Where: Loyalsock State Forest (exact meeting location and directions will be emailed out) Governor Corbett is already negotiating with gas drillers for surface use agreements in Loyalsock forestlands. Time is running out to protect this incredible wild place. Petitions are flooding in from across the state, and now it’s time to deliver. I hope you can join me in this inspired effort, and I’d really love the company. You can join me for the whole march, join me half way, or meet up with me in Williamsport.


I hope you can join me! David Masur PennEnvironment Director PS. Even if you aren’t in the Williamsport area, I hope you’ll think about joining me. I’ll be driving up from Philadelphia and would be happy to give a few people a ride or put you in touch with other people who are headed up from all over the state. RSVP today.
