There are so many wonderful groups that are helping protect the environment nationally, I'll give you just a few. The top group, in my opinion, is the NRDC, the Natural Resources Defense Counsel, they do wonderful work. I'm quite partial to the Walden Woods Project and the Thoreau Institute, that's really one organization that has 2 different branches, but Don Henley and I started that years ago and that's helped protect a lot of land where Henry Thoreau lived, wrote and walked. So that's a very good group. The Native Forest Counsel is another group that's protecting our native forest, they're a national group. It's helping protect our natural lands around the country. So those are 3 groups right there I think that would really get a lot of people involved and help and do more for the environment.
