Spring Legal Defense Fund
Anticipating the need to go to court to protect the
Crystal Spring forest, the Sierra Club has joined
with other environmental and community groups to
establish a Crystal Spring Legal Defense Fund.
Deep-pocketed developers behind the massive project
have made it clear they'll pursue the deal –
variously valued at worth $200 million to $325
million – despite intense community opposition.
The opposing groups and individuals have set an
initial target of $30,000 for a court fight, and
anticipate that's just a beginning. Contributions
We've arranged with the Severn Riverkeeper to accept
donations on that group's website,
www.severnriverkeeper.org. Go to the Donate
page and be sure to write "Crystal Spring Legal
Defense Fund" in the Comment field.
Donations also can be mailed to: CS Legal Defense
Fund, c/o Severn Riverkeeper, 329 Riverview Trail,
Annapolis MD 21401.
