“My wife, Mary and I donate to Grand Staircase Escalante Partners (GSEP) because after I worked for the National Park Service 37 ½ years we are “hung-up” on protecting public land. We can’t contribute to every piece of public land but we donate annually to 6 environmental organizations. We both enjoy horse riding on public land we haven’t been on before and Utah, and GSENM offer a lot of those opportunities and experiences. Two of our 3 sons are working for conservation organizations. The 3rd son is a lawyer that got a Stanford California law degree with a focus of environmental law. While he is practicing contract law, he occasionally give tips for environmental law issues. But what really motivates the us is our 8 grandchildren love to hike, camp, and be outdoors exploring and enjoying public land. One of the 3 older grandchildren is now working for the USFS in Oregon. Apparently Mary and I must have properly “brainwashed” them.”

– Noel Poe, Emeritus Trustee for Partners
