The people of Southern California lost an important voice for the environment with the passing of Dorothy Green (October, 2008). Dorothy’s dedication to preserve the environment serves as an example of how individuals can help improve the life of entire communities. She was truly an inspiration to others.

As an activist and leader in California water policy for over thirty years, Dorothy Green was a strong and dedicated partner with the U.S. EPA, first working to protect the water quality of Santa Monica Bay and founding of Heal the Bay, and then through the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers Watershed Council.

Ms. Green also helped establish, and chaired for 17 years, the Public Officials for Water and Environmental Reform, which sponsors the annual California Water Policy Conference. Dorothy was also instrumental in launching the California Water Impact Network to move the state toward a sustainable water future.

In 2007, Dorothy received the President’s Volunteer Service Award in recognition of her extensive environmental work.

Dorothy’s legacy of defending the environment is well served in the environmental organizations she helped found and in the hundreds of committed environmentalists she helped foster and who follow in her path.
