Welcome to Trustees for Alaska and our spring celebration! It’s May, after all, and here in Southcentral Alaska it’s only snowing… occasionally.

Patagonia Action Works supports our work protecting public lands

We’re grateful to all our supporters and to those of you who took the time to find out more about us through Patagonia Action Works. The commitment of Patagonia to nonprofits like ours working to stop new oil and gas projects and protect land and water makes a huge different. We’re deeply thankful for Patagonia’s engagement with our work, issues, and partners.

For those new to us, here are some quick facts about who we are and what we do:

  • Trustees was founded in 1974 to protect Alaska’s Arctic through strategic guidance to clients and partners, and by going to court to hold industries and agencies accountable to the law.
  • We’re a small but mighty nonprofit public interest law firm with 14 folks on our team and a nearly 50-year history of making big impacts on Alaska’s conservation, climate, and environmental justice climate issues.
  • Trustees works within diverse coalitions of individual Alaskans, Alaska Native organizations, and citizen and conservation groups to prevent the most exploitative project proposals from doing profound harm to land, water, animals, and communities in Alaska.

Our virtual Spring Appeal event ends this month and there are many ways you can participate. Our donors and supporters come from across Alaska and the country, and we would love for you to join our efforts, too! Here’s how.
