About John Detwiler

Protect Our Parks

My wife and I joined the first generation of fractivists in 2010, when we presented Fracking 101 programs in libraries and fire halls. Since then, I’ve had the chance to give volunteer technical support to many of the grassroots groups that have sprung up over those years. Almost 10 years ago, Protect Our Parks was formed to stand against the leasing of Allegheny County’s public parks for fracking. In 2022, Council passed a legislative ban, overriding a the veto of a pro-fracking Executive.
