Chesapeake Energy donates pickup to support conservation
Truck to be raffled off at Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts state meeting
As part of its continuing commitment to Oklahoma and the health of the state's environment, Chesapeake Energy Corporation today announced the donation of a pickup truck to be raffled off during the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts annual meeting in Oklahoma City, Feb. 22, 23 and 24.
"Chesapeake Energy has been a long time supporter of conservation in Oklahoma," Scotty Herriman, President of OACD said. "We are extremely excited that they have so generously donated this truck to help further conservation work in our state. They are truly committed to the conservation and protection of our soil, water, air and wildlife habitats."
The drawing for the vehicle will be open to any Conservation District that is current with their dues and has at least one district director registered for the entire OACD state meeting. Additional tickets will be given to districts for each additional director registered. The drawing for the truck, a quarter-ton four wheel drive fleet vehicle, will take place on the night of Feb. 23 during the annual meeting legislative banquet
"It's an honor for Chesapeake to partner again with the Oklahoma Association of
Conservation Districts," said Tom Price, Jr., Chesapeake Senior Vice President, Corporate Development and Oklahoma County Landowner/Cooperator. "Donating this truck is a way we at Chesapeake can help highlight the importance of environmental responsibility and further the conservation work which is critical to maintaining a high quality of life in our state."
Chesapeake is Oklahoma's largest independent natural gas producer and its most active exploration company. It employs thousands of Oklahomans directly and indirectly on company-operated wells across the state.
"We are so appreciative of Chesapeake Energy and their continuous support of Conservation in Oklahoma," Clay Pope, Executive Director of OACD said. "Through the company's continued support of conservation programs and now this latest donation, Chesapeake is once again showing their strong commitment to the natural resources of Oklahoma. We are so happy to have them again assisting us in accomplishing our goals of conserving and protecting our states soil, water, air and wildlife habitats."
