Meet Evergreen Council Members
Earthjustice is pleased to present here the stories of some of our Evergreen Council members, supporters whose leadership in making a legacy commitment, and in sharing the motivation for their gift, is helping us ensure for future generations the right to a healthy environment. Please let us know if you have left a gift to Earthjustice so that we may welcome you, too, to the Evergreen Council.
"I have always been interested in the outdoors and conservation. In the early 1970s, I worked hard advocating for the Eastern Wilderness Area Act. The forests were coming back & recovering - not pristine, but still in good shape. Then in the mid to late 1970s, I helped protect the Irish Wilderness in the Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri.

Many of our best family memories involve experiencing the magnificent wild places of our country. We are impressed with the dedication of Earthjustice to ensuring the preservation of these precious and often endangered ecosystems. We also believe it is critical to enforce and improve our environmental, safety, and consumer.

Without a doubt, I think of Earthjustice as being the most effective environmental organization on the legal front. I feel like we should give back, and legacy gifts are a very easy way to give. I know of no organization where the money is as well spent for the environment as it is at Earthjustice.
"Through the years I have been fortunate to visit many national parks and other public lands. Hiking, backpacking, canoeing and biking have taken me on many adventures in the great outdoors. From the depths of Death Valley, to the summit of Mt. Rainier, and to the Appalachian Trail, I've developed an appreciation for wilderness."
I taught my family the importance of preserving our natural world and ways of coexisting with nature. Even though we never had a lot of money, we always supported environmental organizations and gave what we could. We especially support Earthjustice because they harness our most important tool, the law.

We included Earthjustice in our estate plans because we believe in charitable giving. Helping get something done makes you feel good! Helping get something done makes you feel good! We don't need to feather our nest; our family is well taken care of and also knows that giving to charity is a great thing.
