Our Partners

There are several non-profit organizations that help us bring resources to our community such as free environmental monitoring, and education, financial and legal resources.  We would like to recognize those partners and encourage community members to support those who support us.


The Alliance for Aquatic Resources Monitoring (ALLARM) is engaging communities to use science as a tool to investigate the health of their streams and to use the data they generate for aquatic protection and restoration efforts. ALLARM has provided capacity building assistance to Pennsylvania communities to monitor, protect and restore local waterways since 1986.  Please visit their Volunteer Monitoring Page for more information on how to get involved or their Shale Gas Manual to learn more about what they do.

MOB has conducted ongoing public outreach for over 5 years, hosting expert speakers, film screenings, public meetings and forums, and organizing rallies, protests, and marches. MOB fully supports and actively advocates for a national ban on fracking, as we believe that it can never be done safely. MOB is also dedicated to educating Butler County about climate change and its effects, as well as fracking’s significant role in causing climate change.
