Faith Meckley was born and raised in Geneva, NY on the north end of Seneca Lake, the largest of the 11 Finger Lakes. Her childhood was spent outside and her connection with nature at a young age has had an enormous impact. Now that she understands that her home region is in danger, not to mention the entire planet, she finds it impossible not to take action. Over the summer and fall of 2014 she walked across the country to demand action on climate change, including a march through the YSU campus. She has been arrested twice for protesting, and may be facing jail time in March for one of her actions. She is currently balancing being a full-time student at Ithaca College and an organizer for We Are Seneca Lake.

The massive expansion plans for gas storage under Seneca Lake is the subject of "Seneca in the Balance," an upcoming public forum on Tuesday, March 11 at Watkins Glen High School Auditorium which will address the future of NY's Finger Lakes region: Will it be clean water and fine wine, or industrial gas storage?
