Working to thwart the 6th extinction by supporting the green movement.

About Us

Why We're Here

We are here to build and operate the Edward Abbey Foundation Green Institute of America, and to use our endowment program to support professors who believe as we do that Abbey is one of the fathers of the green movement.

Endowment Program

Edward Paul Abbey writes on a notepad in front of a cliff face.

 Our first endowment program candidate is professor Tom Zoellner, who we met at the panel, ”The Life of Edward Abbey and His Legacy”. The panel consisted of three professors who had recently written books about Abbey. Their common theme was that even though Abbey lived and died in the 20th century, he is more relevant now in the 21st century. 

Green Institute

  We will have full content production facilities and distribution over the internet with our YouTube channel and indoor and outdoor theaters. We will host a green documentary film festival annually. The institute will display the wares of green businesses and green organizations. These people are the green movement, cooperating with each other to do the best they can with what they have to thwart the sixth extinction.
