Within Sequoia National Park is Mineral King, the splendid mountain wilderness in which Earthjustice took its first steps. More than forty years later, we are as committed as ever to the legacy that started there: Using the law to protect the wildlife and landscapes that shape our nation's character.
The microenvironments of Mineral King Valley are a beautiful portal into the diversity of Earthjustice's work today. From restoring wild rivers to fighting for ancient forests, from protecting species threatened by climate change to encouraging energy sources that don't scar the land or pollute the air above, we are fighting to preserve our natural heritage for this and future generations.
We invite you to use the interactive features and videos on this website to immerse yourself in Mineral King Valley. Experience its rivers, mountains, lakes, and trails—and explore the wide range of work Earthjustice is engaged in now, and the milestones we have reached over the past four decades to protect similar areas throughout our country.
