On this Earth Day we remember our dear friend Edgar Wayburn who died a year ago, big hearted and sharp of mind at the age of 103. Ed was responsible for saving over 100 million acres of parkland. A recipient of the Medal of Freedom and five time president of the Sierra Club, Ed mentored generations of environmental activists.
