Mary Gorman is a Green Hero, local activist, and Sierra Club Member who has dedicated her life to protecting the Gulf of St. Lawrence. She has lived for decades in the toxic legacy of the Pictou County pulp mill - her family’s cottage was on its once pristine shores.
Human health is intimately connected to the health of the planet. We need fresh water, clean oceans, and natural spaces that contain a rich array of animals, insects and plants. Promoting education about and recreation in our natural spaces has been a part of the Sierra Club philosophy since it was founded in 1892.
