Serve Communities

Mine tour tripWhen the oil and gas or mining industry shows up in a community, citizens and local governments are often caught off guard. 

In these hard economic times, promises of jobs, huge lease bonuses or taxes to fund local government coffers can sound extremely appealing.

But the reality of development is often quite different.  And citizens and local governments are too often left wishing they had done more to protect their land, environment, health and communities -- starting from the moment the industry first arrived.
