Stop the PennEast Pipeline!
The route of the proposed PennEast natural gas pipeline is planned to cut through ecologically-sensitive areas of Hopewell Township, devastating a 125-foot wide swath of protected forests, wetlands, open space, farmland, and pristine waterways in its wake. Help us defend the land we have worked hard to protect over the past 65 years. Click to learn more about this issue.
