The Environmental Protection Information Center had some extraordinary accomplishments in 2017. Highlights include: defending wolf, marten, Pacific fisher and owl protections; thwarting a destructive railroad proposal; saving big trees and creeks from logging; litigating to protect Richardson Grove, and wild places in the Klamath region; petitioning to end the sale of invasive ivy, and the list goes on. But the most inspiring aspect of our work in the last year was connecting with our community in wild places to provide outdoor skill trainings for the next generation of community members to monitor projects in the field, lead outdoor hikes, and connect diverse communities with nature. Below is a glimpse into some of the quantifiable tasks that EPIC tackled in 2017.
We have our work cut out for us, and with your support , we will have the means to continue marching forward with a plan for a sustainable future.

We heard your feedback! Many of our members and supporters have asked us to reduce snail mail correspondence, so in an effort to eliminate paper waste, we are publishing the 2017 Annual Report online. A limited number of hard copies will be sent to our old school supporters who don’t typically respond to emails, and a small number of Annual Reports will be available for pickup at our office or by mail upon request.
If you have any resources to spare, we would be honored to accept your contribution in the following ways:
