By funding public intellectuals who examine and popularize Abbey's works, we can bring awareness of our namesake to a new generation. Abbey was one of the fathers of the green movement, and though he lived and died in the 20th century, his example is more important than ever in the 21st century.
A meeting place for the green movement, located in the desert environment Abbey loved. With full content production facilities, indoor and outdoor theaters hosting an annual environmental film festival, and a marketplace for local green businesses, the Institute will become the environmental heart of Tucson.
Support the Edward Paul Abbey Foundation Green Institute of America and our endowmment program. Any donation helps, and donating more than $100 allows you to put your name on a desert tortoise bench at the Intitute. Or, sponsor an entire bench for $1000.
