He is also a founder of 350.org, the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement; the Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies at Middlebury College; and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His honors include the Gandhi Prize, the Thomas Merton Prize, and honorary degrees from eighteen colleges and universities.

She is a longtime board member of the Audubon Society of Central Maryland and the coeditor of Companions in Wonder: Reflections on Children and Adults Exploring Outdoors Together.
