Board VP and Treasurer, Executive Director (pro tem), Co-Founder
San Anselmo, CA & Cordova, AK
In 1993 Carol started working with Dune with the "public interest litigant lawsuit" which stopped a planned 75,000 clearcut on Eyak lands in the Exxon Valdez spillzone. This effort started a domino effect of development-rights purchases across Prince William Sound and ultimately over 700,000 acres of trees and salmon habitat were saved. After that victory, she promptly sold her business and started working full-time on Chugach, Copper River and Prince William Sound issues with Dune. She is currently fulfilling all of the duties of Executive Director and has long-time experience in all aspects of operating EPC, overseeing its programs and fundraising functions. She also works closely with the Gwich'in Steering Committee on the Arctic Refuge preservation challenge, and her business acumen has been instrumental in the Sustainable Communities program. A graduate of American University in Washington DC, Carol Hoover is a lifelong environmentalist and is co-founder of the federally recognized Eyak Preservation Council. Before working with EPC, Carol was the owner and creative director of a successful award-winning internationally recognized consulting firm in San Francisco; she developed marketing strategies and brand identities for such clients as British Telecom, Pacific Telesis, Paramount Parks, Firemen's Fund, Novel, ABC News, Bank of America and Winterland Productions. At Winterland Productions, she directed the merchandising for hundreds of musicians and rock stars from Cher to Billie Joel to LL Cool Jay to the Dooby Brothers to the Grateful Dead.
