Mining and Fracking


NPCA’s new report, National Parks and Hydraulic Fracturing, examines the impact of existing, proposed, and potential oil and gas development on America’s national parks and offers recommendations to ensure that future drilling safeguards public health and the environment. With five in-depth case studies, the report connects the dots on how fracking near national parks can impact the parks themselves.

Drilling and mining for resources in and around park lands can harm fragile ecosystems, impact wildlife habitat, and contaminate air and water in the communities that surround them. NPCA has worked for years on the ground in various regions to protect park landscapes from these threats.
