We are the Penn Forest Township chapter of Save Our Allegheny Ridges (SOAR), a non-profit organization devoted to preserving Pennsylvania’s forested mountains.

Our community in Carbon County PA has recently learned that a major wind energy corporation has leased property from the Bethlehem Watershed Authority. The corporation has submitted a proposal to the Penn Forest Township Zoning Board to construct a wind turbine project comprising approximately 40 industrial wind turbines up to 525 ft high, with over 300 ft spin range, along a ridge in Penn Forest Township. The watershed property is adjacent to several communities, including Towamensing Trails, Hickory Run Forest, and Beltzville Lake Estates. Hundreds of acres of forest will be cleared for this project, destroying the habitat for the area wildlife.  The negative impact on quality of life and property values is enormous. We need funds to pay attorney and expert witness fees to fight this at the scheduled township zoning board hearing on June 23rd.
Help us to preserve the natural beauty of the Pocono Mountains!

We must save our beautiful mountains. And we must support our neighbors who will be most impacted by these wind turbines.
