Save the Birds – Rally against the Constitution Pipeline


tanagerPlease mark your calendars for the ‘Rally to Save NY From FERC‘ in Albany, April 5th.

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has to make a decision about the Constitution pipeline by April 26, 2016, and whatever DEC decides will determine what happens in NYS – and beyond – for years to come.  If DEC denies the 401 water quality certificate, we win.  If DEC grants the 401 water quality certificate, we lose.If you want to save our birds, trees, streams, and wetlands, and if you want to keep pipelines, compressor stations, and power plants out of your community, then come to Albany on April 5th.
