The Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC) combines public education, citizen advocacy, and strategic litigation to advocate for the protection and restoration of Northwest California’s forests, watersheds, and wildlife using an integrated approach based on best available science.

EPIC recognizes that issues of social justice, human rights and environmental justice are inextricably linked to our mission to protect and restore Northwest California’s environment.


In recognition of this intersectionality, EPIC will work with local marginalized communities to stand up for environmental quality and social justice, to expand the conservation movement to include communities that have been historically excluded, and to promote dialogue and increased understanding.

EPIC will also make efforts to maintain a Board of Directors that reflects the broad environmental concerns and issues affecting Northwest California, particularly those of marginalized communities.
