Gas Leasing in Public State Forest Lands will be the topic of a public meeting sponsored by Lycoming College Clean Water Institute

A planned speaker will be Nels Johnson of The Nature Conservancy, Harrisburg office, who will describe a study and report conducted
with the PA DCNR on impacts of leasing additional State Forest Land . The study includes a mapping analysis of surface disturbance effects
on the sustainable balance and wild character of remaining State Forest Lands not yet leased for gas development.
