Jim Edgar Former Illinois Governor

For 20 years, the ELPC has been working to improve environmental quality and protect our natural resources here in Illinois and across the Midwest. As Illinois Attorney General, I’ve been proud to partner with ELPC to protect our rights to safe drinking water and clean air. Congratulations, ELPC, on reaching this great milestone. And I know the next 20 years will be just as successful.

As one of America’s 11 most endangered places, the Saugatuck Dunes cultural landscape owes a great deal of thanks to the Environmental Law and Policy Center for making this place on the Great Lakes a little less endangered. We are grateful for your wise council, good humor and for mentoring those who care so deeply for our place.
