Sportsmen and women and conservation groups in the heart of the Marcellus Shale region are working together to identify and propose solutions to mitigate the impacts from gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing on hunting, fishing and trapping experiences. The Sportsmen Marcellus Shale Summit will look at how Marcellus Shale development will affect sportsmen and women. With state and regional updates from sportsmen and women and fish and wildlife experts, this day-long conference will be useful to hunters, anglers, conservationists, and others who are interested in learning more about how to protect fish and wildlife habitat from the impacts of gas drilling.

Learn from experts in the field, listen to the first-hand experiences of sportsmen and women, and participate in the discussion of the following topics:

  •    Potential Impacts: What are the major fish and wildlife concerns from the
       development of Marcellus Shale gas and associated infrastructure;
  •    Laws and Regulations: Which are important in protecting fish and wildlife;
  •    Sporting Clubs: Protecting fish and wildlife when you lease club lands;
  •    Monitoring Efforts: What sportsmen are doing to monitor drilling impacts
       and how you can get involved;
  •    Best Management Practices: How can they protect the interests of
    sportsmen and women; and
  •    Special Places: Protecting hunting, fishing and trapping traditions in areas
       where drilling should be limited or prohibited.

Opening remarks start at 9 a.m. and the conference will conclude by 4 p.m.
