Responsible Associated Landowners of New York State

Bill Feldman of Andes Works! describes the Responsible Associated Landowners of New York State, or REALNYS, as “a site by and for like-minded landowners who are against slick water, high volume hydrofracturing (fracking) of our lands to extract shale gas and oil.”

Feldman and fellow REALNYS board member Leigh Melander, also of Andes Works!, have put together a video to educate fellow landowners on the tactics of the gas industry so that citizens can make informed decisions about their land and engage in shaping public policy.

REALNYS is an ad hoc, grassroots group of community volunteer landowners from all over the state who have no agenda other than to protect their land and future from the damages of fracking.

Feldman hopes that REALNYS will be a place for people to do something positive for their communities and take a stand against the bullying of the gas industry. Already, more than 1,565 members have signed up to protect their more than 32,000 acres of land.

Duane, thanks so much for sharing this!

We are very excited about what’s happening with this effort — as of tomorrow (August 15), we will have been working at this for exactly one month, and it’s looking like we’ll have 50,000 acres and close to 2400 owners represented on our site.
