20 Year Retrospective
Looking Back at 20 Years of the Earthrise Law Center
Since the early 90’s, Earthrise’s attorneys and students have done amazing work. Together, we have saved red tree voles, bald eagles, spotted owls and salmon. We have protected the Pacific Northwest from countless timber sales, coal burning facilities, open pit mines and overgrazing of public lands. We have protected rivers in Illinois, Connecticut, Washington, Oregon and California. We have set legal precedent in cases regarding the Clean Water Act. And we have trained hundreds of future environmental attorneys.
Earthrise’s record of success over the last two decades is hard to sum up, but you can see for yourself in our 20 Year Retrospective and in a moving video that tells the story of how the clinic got started and why its existence is so important.
