Olympic Forest Coalition: Peggy Bruton
Olympic Forest Coalition: Peggy Bruton Peggy Bruton is on the Board of Directors of the Olympic Forest Coalition. Peggy grew up and lived most of her life in Washington D.C. She joined the U.S. Peace Corps in 1961 and spent two years in Thailand, and then returned to raise a family and work as a freelance editorial consultant, with stints at Greenpeace and Defenders of Wildlife. She has lived in Olympia, Washington for the last 20 years with her husband, David Edwards, a stone sculptor and peace activist. Excessive logging and poorly constructed or maintained roads have unfortunately degraded the natural integrity of the Olympic Peninsula, including wildlife habitat and clean water. Such actions continue to cause harm, both through legacies of past damage and lack of regulatory protections today. Prevention and correction of these issues are where the Olympic Forest Coalition (OFCO) finds its calling. OFCO is devoted not only to monitoring and intervening on behalf of the natural marvels of the Olympic National Forest and Olympic Experimental State Forest, but also to share and emphasize the findings of our region's scientists, while communicating a positive vision of a more respectful and forward-thinking relationship with these lands and waters.
