|Subject:||Loyalsock State Forest Resolution|
|In the near future, I intend to introduce a Resolution that would urge Governor Corbett to do everything in his power to prevent drilling operations from occurring on the Clarence Moore tracts in the Loyalsock State Forest.
The Loyalsock State Forest, located in Lycoming, Sullivan and Bradford Counties, is home to a wealth of magnificent natural and recreational resources, including the Old Loggers path, a 27-mile hiking trail and Rock Run, an exceptional value stream.
The 25,621 acre Clarence Moore Tract is currently under the threat of unconventional gas development by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation. This development would degrade the environmental and recreational value of the land.
