EDGI members at our August team retreat in North Carolina


We were busy this summer! Here’s a quick recap of some of the things we’ve been up to over the last few months.


  • After sounding the alarm about the EPA’s plans to sunset its web archive, EDGI members sent an open letter to the EPA, co-signed by the Sierra Club and other groups, urging the agency to maintain this critical public resource. The EPA subsequently announced a year-long extension of the web archive.
  • In collaboration with Toxic Docs, the Sierra Club, and other groups, EDGI released a new public repository for searching environmental documents obtained through FOIA and demonstrated how to use it at a public workshop webinar
  • EDGI’s Environmental Historians Action Collaborative (EHAC) team co-organized ‘The Climate Crisis: Early Americanists Respond‘ conference to support and promote scholarship developing new lines of inquiry in researching the history of the climate crisis.
