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 headquarters for the green movement located in the desert environment Abbey loved, the Institute will feature full content production facilities, indoor and outdoor theaters hosting an annual environmental film festival, and a space for green businesses and organizations to display their wares.
Support the Edward Paul Abbey Institute 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.
