What Can We Do For You?
We in the Western Maryland Group are volunteers, willing to help
our neighbors in a variety of ways. We are available to lead discussions to schools & groups
on environmental issues, lead outings, and provide expert advice to concerned citizens and the media.
Please don't hesitate to ask!
Take action on Marcellus Gas
The Maryland Sierra Club has been working with other environmental groups to make sure Maryland passes regulations to
ensure natural gas drilling in Maryland is done in a environmentally responsible manner - or not at all.
If you're interested in helping out on Marcellus issues, send Sam White an email.

Western Maryland Group's stance on Wind Energy
What happens when an Industrial Wind Energy Plant is built on agriculture land in the Great Plains? Clean, renewable
energy - enough to power the United States.
What happens when an Industrial Wind Energy Plant is built on the ridges of Appalachia, where
ideal wind blows only 25% of the time? A taxpayer subsidized corporate give away, with no noticable dent
in greenhouse gas emissions. If Maryland is serious about climate change, it will focus on geothermal,
distributed wind and solar energy to homeowners and small businesses, off-shore wind, and most importantly, CONSERVATION!
Industrial Wind in Western Maryland is bad for Appalachia, bad for Climate Change,
and bad for Maryland. Industrial Wind belongs on the Great Plains and off-shore.

The Western Maryland Group now has an email discussion group/Listserv for its members.
