We're fighting for park protection.

Valley Forge. Ohiopyle. Gettysburg. The Delaware Water Gap. These and dozens of Pennsylvania parks are the places where we go to hike, fish, and get a breath of fresh air with our friends and family. This year, PennEnvironment helped convince Sen. Robert Casey to support funding for one of America’s most important—and successful—park preservation programs. This will ensure the best places in Pennsylvania and across the nation will be funded and protected now and for future generations.

You’re building support to save the bees.

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. In 2015, we mobilized grassroots support for protecting these vital pollinators. Thanks to your support, our national team and a coalition of beekeepers, farmers and others delivered more than 4 million petitions calling on the Obama administration to declare a ban on neonicotinoids, a class of bee-killing pesticides.

We're keeping Pennsylvania safe from fracking.

2013 was one of marked progress in our fight to protect Pennsylvania against Marcellus Shale gas drilling. We helped deliver the largest fracking petition of its kind in state history, released three new fracking reports, and helped produce a fracking exposé. But the biggest victory of the year came when the state’s heavily-slanted pro-drilling law that once gave drillers carte blanche to drill where they want, when they want, was finally overturned.
