Nick Weber is a member of Trout Unlimited (and PPTU) and as Chairman of the Mid-Atlantic Council was chosen to be a member of the Advisory Commission. Nick will share the outcomes of past efforts of the Commission, its current issues and what activities lie ahead. The efforts of the Commission are focused primarily on Garrett County and Western Allegany County where the natural gas deposits of Marcellus Shale are located. Nick's main passion and focus has been the preservation of the unique habitat and ecosystem that supports the most extensive brook trout system in the Southern Appalachians. It is clear that gas development can have significant impacts on habitat and the environment that not only affect people who live in Garrett and Allegany County, but also the significant tourism industry of that area which includes us fishers. The protection of the irreplaceable natural resources of the area is a responsibility for all of us and for future generations. Come hear about the developments of this initiative and hopefully answer most questions that you may have. Be advised that you will hear the word 'Fracking' used more than once.
