In case you missed it, here’s what you should be up to tomorrow evening:

Large-scale gas drilling in the Catskill area could result in the irreversible pollution of our water supply and cost New York billions of dollars in the process.

An educational panel discussing Natural Gas Drilling Near NYC’s Watershed in the Catskill Mountains, covering its environmental, economic, and political implications and why New Yorkers can’t afford to take its clean unfiltered tap water for granted. Panelists wil discuss the risks and benefits of hydrofracking, the environmental impacts, alternatives to drilling, current policies and the Department of Environment Conservation (DEC) rules concerning this industry in New York State, and what we can do to protect our precious water supply.

And so it is that the MYD Environmental Committee invites you to:
