  • January Member spotlight: John and Margaret Green

    Defending the Columbia River from irresponsible development and illegal pollution depends on a strong network of citizen advocates. For 10 years, John and Margaret Green have been outstanding partners with Columbia Riverkeeper on campaigns to keep LNG and coal export off the Columbia, stop illegal dumping, and prevent an oil refinery and a propane export terminal from calling Longview home. The Greens served on the board of Landowners and Citizens for a Safe Community—a successful citizen group taking on the most difficult environmental issues in the Pacific Northwest. They’ve served on the board of the Willapa Hills Audubon Society and provided
