WE NEED YOU

TIME TO GET LOUD
On Feb. 20, the Maryland Public Service Commission will begin reviewing permits for Dominion's $3.8 billion fracked-gas export facility on the Chesapeake Bay. Join hundreds -- from the fracking fields of Pennsylvania to the Western mountains of Maryland to the DC suburbs and the Eastern Shore -- to show that people across our region want clean energy and safe communities, not a mega-facility for exporting dirty fracked gas. SIGN UP here and indicate if you want to ride a bus to the rally. A Baltimore Sun article highlights Cove Point safety concerns.
 

Environmental Leadership

Thursdays from Feb. 6 to March 27
Last week to sign up: Make a difference in your community through the Legacy Leadership Environmental Institute (LLEI). Experts at NASA, NOAA, the University of Maryland and other agencies explain global climate change, sustainability, earth systems science, and best practices on leaving an
environmental legacy. Info here.
