Protecting a Longleaf Pine Legacy

From CPCG Director, Andy Wood:

In 1970, I entered the so-called “modern environmental movement” and through nearly five decades since, including 28 years as a volunteer public radio commentator (1987-2015), I have spoken for responsible care of natural resources to the benefit of fish in the sea, snails in the swamps, birds in the air, and people who share this planet with every other Earthling.

As an ecologist, I view protection of natural resources as the best and surest way to provide a sustainable future for humanity. As a conservation educator and in my role as Director of CPCG, I will continue working to increase awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the priority we each share: a planet capable of supporting the human species. I’m reminded of 1970.

Fund-raising consultants tell us people donate to people, rather than to organizations. Assuming this is true, I’m glad to provide more information about my environmental conservation background, and vision for achieving a safe future for people, plants, and wildlife, and the habitats that support us all.

While this is an appeal to you for a donation to CPCG, please know we will be grateful if you introduce us to someone who you think might be interested in supporting our focused works.

Thank you for your consideration of this request,

Andy Wood, CPCG Director
