Three Educational Forums: Fracking in Northeast Ohio (Aug. & Sept.)

AUG 10 (Garretsville), AUG 24 (Kirtland) & SEPT 7 (Hiram)
Educational Forums: Fracking in Northeast Ohio
The OEC will be sponsoring 3 Educational Forums on Fracking in Northeast Ohio this summer. The forums will cover the current state of regulation and science on high volume, horizontal fracturing and its affects. The forums are designed to be useful to a wide audience. We will have a brief Fracking 101 for those new to the issue and some in depth discussion with Ohio experts on Fracking issues. Each forum will be a stand alone event but each will have a different expert speaker and a different location. You can choose to attend just one forum or all three.

The main focus of the series will be to discuss the importance of citizen involvement and how to comment on proposed Ohio Department of Natural Resources rules.

The forums are FREE and Open to the Public but RSVP is requested.
Beverages and a light lunch will be served.
RSVP to the OEC at (614)487-7506 or via email.
