NO to Fracking Petition & Comment Drop-Off in Springfield

  • Illinois Department of Natural Resources 1 Natural Resources Way Springfield, IL, 62702 United States (map)

On Friday, July 28th, concerned citizens and environmental action groups from across the state will gather at the Illinois Department of Natural Resources building in Springfield to say "NO!" to fracking.

This will be the final day for public comment on the first high-volume fracking permit request in Illinois. Multiple groups that have organized petition, letter-writing, and public comment campaigns will be submitting documents to the IDNR on Friday afternoon, and we invite you to join our demonstration outside the offices as we do so.

Rides will be available from Chicago for anyone interested in going. Please contact volunteer@ilgp.org for details.
