    Save Gallitzin State Forest from Industrial Wind Development

    To be delivered to: The Pennsylvania State Senate Vote “NO” on SB 1425. An industrial wind project should not be sited in Gallitzin State Forest. Pennsylvania’s state forests should be managed for pure water, recreation, scenic beauty, plant and animal habitat, and sustainable timber. Industrial wind turbine projects should not be constructed on state forest lands. While Gallitzin State Forest in Cambria and Somerset Counties does have areas that were mined, many trees have been planted to reclaim this damaged . . .

Avoid placing turbines in bird migration pathways. Avoid placing turbines near known bat hibernation, breeding, and maternity colonies. Avoid fragmenting large, contiguous tracts of wildlife habitat. As you can see, siting industrial windplants on central Pennsylvania’s forested ridges is in violation of the criteria for acceptable locations according to the US Fish & Wildlife . . .
