His life of service inspired thousands and helped create Earthjustice

Former Earthjustice Executive Director Buck Parker offers these thoughts on Dr. Ed Wayburn:

Earthjustice notes with sadness the passing of Dr. Ed Wayburn at age 103 on Friday, March 5. We were privileged to work with Dr. Wayburn during his decades of leadership of the Sierra Club and of many national conservation campaigns to establish and protect national parks, wilderness areas, and the magnificent landscapes of Alaska.

He was also a key supporter for creating Earthjustice, originally the Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund, and maintained a life-long interest in the organization and its work. The efforts of Ed and his late wife Peggy inspired the work of thousands of citizen activists, including many Earthjustice staff, board and supporters, in protecting our public lands and resources.

For more information about Dr. Wayburn and his monumental contribution to the American conservation movement please visit the web site of the Sierra Club.

I knew Ed in the Sierra Club back when I was the Vice President for Regions.He always had a very wise and grounded opinion on everything. This is like losing a giant Redwood but his mark on environmental progress will last forever. Good hiking way up there, Ed!

Thank you, Dr. Wayburn! We will continue your work.
