Mountaineers Foundation Awards Community Grant to Earthrise
June 28, 2013
6/28/13 - The Mountaineers Foundation has awarded Earthrise Law Center a Community Grant for the second year in a row. The $3,000 grant will support the Oregon Waters initiative. The Foundation’s Community Grants program expressed their appreciation for Earthrise’s role in representing clients in public interest environmental litigation as well as providing an important training ground for law students–work congruent with the Foundation’s mission of “passing the best possible environmental legacy to ensuing generations.”
The award will support Earthrise’s advocacy in areas such as enforcement of the Clean Water Act and the protection of watersheds on Oregon public lands, all while training law students to carry on this work. Our sincere thanks to the Mountaineers Foundation for their support.
