We're standing up for our rivers and streams.

Whether you’re kayaking in Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers, fishing in the Susquehanna, or walking along the Schuylkill, our rivers and streams are a big part of what makes Pennsylvania so special. For decades, we’ve held the line for our waterways and fought tooth and nail to protect them from polluters. But in 2013, we came closer than ever to our biggest clean water victory in decades when President Obama took a much-needed step to close loopholes in the Clean Water Act that give polluters free rein to exploit the waters we love.


We're defending Loyalsock State Forest from drilling.

Loyalsock State Forest is one of the crown jewels of Pennsylvania’s state forest system, providing thousands of visitors with world-class hiking, canoeing and camping experiences each year. So when Gov. Tom Corbett proposed opening some of the most pristine parts of Loyalsock to fracking, PennEnvironment swung into action. Because of the public support we helped build in 2013, wild places like the crystal blue Rock Run and historic Old Loggers Path remain off-limits to drilling.
