Ohio DNR wants to clear-cut and burn it’s way through Ohio’s natural forests. Take action
The Great Lakes are a national treasure, and economically support a $7 billion fishing industry, $16 billion boating industry, and 1.5 million jobs. The introduction of Asian carp and other species puts the well-being of our communities, wildlife, and waters at risk.
ROCK THE RAILS OHIO!!!

Rock the Rails Ohio
Join us for Rock the Rails, a free concert and rally to bring passenger rail to Ohio on Saturday, October 23 in Columbus. This event is hosted by the Sierra Club and Environmental Law & Policy Center. Featuring performances by Jen Miller, Josh Krajcik, Billy 2 Shoes and Eric Nassau & Friends, Rock the Rails offers a forum to support passenger rail.
While 3C is viable in Ohio, it has become a partisan issue with Governor Strickland remaining determined to complete this project. His challenger John Kasich continues to threaten to kill the proposal if elected. Such a view is shortsighted, because every state that has instituted this type of passenger train service has experienced increased development, job growth, reduction of urban sprawl, and improved quality of life. Passenger rail creates more jobs than highway construction and maintenance as well. Show your support for environmentally friendly transportation and be a part of Rock the Rails.
