Great Rivers Environmental Law Center

We provide free and reduced-fee legal services to individuals and organizations who are working to protect the environment and public health. We have successfully represented citizens' groups seeking to preserve parks from commercial development, defended citizens' rights to grow sustainable gardens, and helped environmental groups expand clean energy use.

As our founder, Lewis Green, said, "The environment can't protect itself, somebody's got to do it!"

Our full mission statement:

Great Rivers Environmental Law Center is a nonprofit public interest environmental organization working to:
* promote the public health by encouraging cleaner energy, improved environmental performance by businesses, and more efficient transportation and land use, thereby achieving cleaner air and water, and improving the quality of life in the region;
*preserve open spaces, forests, floodplains and wetlands for their recreational, aesthetic, and agricultural benefits, and their values as flood storage and habitat for migratory birds and other species;
*protect disadvantaged populations from an unreasonable share of the environmental burdens of modern society; and
*aid and advise citizens and organizations in asserting and defending their interests in environmental values before administrative officials, and, as a last resort, before the courts.
