Celebrating the Life of Luanne Wells

Environment Now celebrates the life and work of Co-Founder and Board Member Luanne Wells, who passed away in July 2021. Among her many contributions, her efforts at Environment Now resulted in a “picket line” of Waterkeepers who have improved the state’s coastal and inland environment for decades, and the establishment of a strong advocacy voice for protecting California’s national forests from commercial logging. As Luanne expressed, the founding of Environment Now reflected a “passionate desire to help protect and preserve” the natural environment, and to secure lasting results for the future. We acknowledge with deep gratitude her heartfelt commitment to making a meaningful difference for California’s environment and communities.
