Getting the Word Out in the Fight to Save the Earth
Beamish argues that the key to saving and restoring our environment is "getting the word out." As a former director of communications for the National Audubon Society and a consultant to an array of environmental, cultural, and educational groups, he draws on thirty years of experience to show what works and what doesn't for every type of organization - large and small, rich and poor, established and newly conceived. Much of the advice in the book is based on his recent efforts to save one of the largest natural areas in the eastern United States - the Adirondack Park of New York State. Beamish describes how in just three years his organization quintupled its support through an aggressive direct-mail campaign, kept its surging membership informed and active, flooded politicians with mail at every critical juncture, and used the power of the press to spread its message far and wide.
