Frack Fighters in Otsego County NY

Advocates for Morris is not alone in its efforts to protect our community from hydrofracking.  Check out the list below of some of our fellow "frackfighters" around Otsego County.   Groups such as ours are springing up all over the State--and around the U.S. & the World!

In Otsego County, our coordinating group is the Coalition Against Unsafe Drilling (CAUD), led by Otsego 2000.  Our regional coordinator is Catskill Mountainkeeper; and the statewide coordinating organization is New Yorkers Against Fracking
