 Introduction
    Welcome to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 10's newest publication -The 1994/95
 Public interest Groups and Environmental Education Directory. Region 10 EPA is frequently consulted for
 the names of public interest groups which work with and solicit support for environmental and conservation
 concerns.  Much of the time, this same information  is requested in order to assist youth groups, educators,
 schools, and others in providing environmental education. We have gathered information from businesses,
 industries, utilities, public interest groups, and federal and state agencies which have environmental/conservation
 programs and information materials.                                             i

    In the past, Region 10 has annually made available two separate publications: The Public Interests Group
 Directory and The Environmental Education Directory. In an attempt to provide better service to you, to
 eliminate duplication and reduce printing costs, and to try and bring the audiences of both publications closer
 together, Region 10 has combined these separate directories into a single Public Interest Groups and
 Environmental Education Directory for the 1994/95 edition.  For easier access, each environmental group's
 entry has been referenced with a code (in the right margin) - public interest groups are denoted by (PIG), while
 environmental education organizations are denoted by (EE).  Organizations that tend to function in both capacities
.are annotated with the reference code (**). This directory is by no means completely inclusive, but it is intended to
 suggest resources that may be available within your community, and to help you find groups with which you may
 share a common environmental concern.                                         I

    We appreciate the tremendous response to previous editions of our Public Interest CSroups and Environmental
 Education Directories, and we welcome your feedback on this new format. In order to continue to meet your
 needs, and to keep this publication current and as helpful as possible, please feel free to return the last page of
 this Directory to us with your comments and  suggestions for future editions.           !

  Environmental Justice Grants
 Contact: Robyn Meeker

 In its 1992 report, Environmental
 Equity: Reducing Risk for All
 Communities, the U.S. EPA found that
 people of color and low-income
 communities experience higher than
 average exposure to toxic pollutants in
 comparison to the general population.
 EPA is interested in helping these
 communities to identify and assess
 these pollution sources, to implement
 environmental awareness and training
 programs for affected residents, and to
 work with local stakeholders (i.e.
 community-based organizations,
 academia, industry, local governments)
 to devise strategies for environmental
 improvement. The grants program is
 intended to provide financial assistance
 and stimulate a public purpose by
 supporting projects to any affected
 community group (i.e., community
 based/grassroots organization, school,
 church, education agency, college or
 university, or non-profit organization)
 and/or tribe who engage or plan to
carry out projects to address
environmental justice issues.
