The Wright Scoop -
Sylvia Hoehns Wright
Inspire others to be naturalists with a “waste not, and want not” ecological commitment: caretakers of the environmental community.
A child of the ‘tell instead of read me a story’ era, Wright urges all to identify and record their family heritage. In her book, Eco-legacy – a millennium woman’s heritage which is dedicated to her community Laurel Historic District, she shares the story of a childhood and present-day life-style at Hoehns Lake located in Henrico County VA. Readers are invited to savor nostalgia for places that are near and dear to heart, recall family traditions; and perhaps more importantly, renew experiences.

Recommended by Today’s Garden Center and Washington Gardener magazines and VA Home Grown TV personality Richard Nunnally, Wright’s advocacy is described as
"As an environmentalist and president of the Cornell Douglas foundation, I have been searching for new words to define those of us who advocate for protecting our natural resources for future generations. Wright's word- eco-legacy is perfect: it encourages all of us to recognize that water, land, and air are not expendable luxuries, but critical resources we must sustain in our roles as responsible stewards. "- Ann Cornell, President Cornell Douglas Foundation www.CornellDouglas.org
"Wright’s eco-chic advocacy embodies every aspect of the consumer education campaign we hoped to inspire. For, our vision is to become a global organization that empowers people within communities to change society through the responsible creation and preservation of sustainable green spaces, such that the ever-increasing impacts of global warming in the world are measurably reduced; because Green Matters!" - Den Gardner, executive director of Project EverGreen.
