Through the Alliance, chefs and restaurateurs are calling attention to the importance of bees to our food supply, the dramatic die-off of bee populations, and the need to protect our pollinators.

In anticipation of the scariest of holidays, PennEnvironment offered a list of the Top Ten Frightening Facts about Western Pennsylvania’s three rivers and their recommendations on ways to make next Halloween less “terrifying” for the Allegheny, Ohio and Monongahela Rivers and Pennsylvania’s other waterways.
PennEnvironment applauds Governor Ed Rendell for signing an Executive Order today to ban any further leases for Marcellus Shale gas drilling in Pennsylvania’s state forests. While the drilling industry appears to be using its access and influence to run rampant in Harrisburg—most recently convincing the state Senate to hold up a natural gas severance tax—it is reassuring to see Gov. Rendell take such strong steps to protect this valuable resource.
Because all Pennsylvanians are the owners and stewards of our state forests, we have an obligation to protect them from encroaching gas drilling and all of the negative environmental impacts that come with it.
