Stop PennEast? Become an Intervenor
This is urgent. PennEast Pipeline formally "filed" with FERC on September 24 so you may have only until October 15 to "Intervene" in the project. Anyone can intervene. If you visit and care about Baldpate, Rockhopper, etc. 27% of NJ route crosses IBAs (Important Bird Areas) you'll want to intervene. ***You have nothing to lose -- it requires nothing on your part beyond properly registering***

PennEast Pipeline Proposal — A BAD IDEA!
PennEast has proposed a natural gas pipeline that would cross under the Delaware River near Milford, traverse Hunterdon County, and end in Hopewell Township near the Pole Farm, crossing preserved farmland and forested reserves with the potential to cause far-reaching environmental damage. Read more about it here.
Meetings of the Washington Crossing Audubon Society are held on the third Monday of each month from September to May. At 7:30 p.m., join us for a refreshment social; at 8:00, our program begins. Programs are held in Stainton Hall on the campus of the Pennington School. The campus is on Delaware Avenue between Route 31 and Main Street in Pennington; enter from Delaware Avenue between brick lamp posts (across the street from tennis courts), proceed a short distance to an intersection, and turn right into the parking area. Parking is free. The walkway to Stainton Hall is evident at the end of the parking lot. (View Detailed Map)
