Don’t Destroy National Forest With Harmful Fracking

Target: Brian Steed, Deputy Director, Programs and Policy, Bureau of Land Management

Goal: Don’t auction off valuable natural land for fracking by oil and gas companies.

The state of Ohio’s only national forest may soon be destroyed by the effects of fracking. The Bureau of Land Management plans to auction off more than 340 acres of Wayne National Forest for fracking by oil and natural gas companies.

Fracking has been proven time and time again to have both damaging consequences on the environment and deadly consequences for the animals that call it home. Fracking pollutes drinking water, causes explosions, leads to land clearing, and has even been shown to cause earthquakes.

Ohio’s only national forest may be forever destroyed if fracking is allowed within its property. Sign the petition to demand that the Wayne National Forest be protected from fracking and its deadly consequences.


Dear Mr. Steed,

Ohio’s only national forest, Wayne National Forest, may soon be destroyed if more than 340 acres are auctioned off for fracking by oil and gas companies. The damage that will be done is irreversible.

Fracking has been shown to pollute drinking water, destroy habitats, kill animals, lead to illness, and even cause earthquakes. The citizens of Ohio do not want such devastation in their own backyard. I demand you scrap plans to auction off valuable national forest land.

  1. Every tree counts. A forest is worthless. Providing a home to so many species, acting has a carbon sink and providing people a place to get away from it all.

    And fracking is dangerous to the health of both humans and animals. Let’s do better!

  2. Thank you for the petition. I signed.
