In the 1970s Threshold was an early leader in developing concepts, principles and models of ecological sustainability. The pioneering book on sustainability: Ecological Principles for Economic Development, published in 1973 was a good example of this historically early effort. John P. Milton and Peter Freeman were both early Threshold collaborators in the writing of this book. Also during the 1970s, safeguarding vast areas of threatened Alaskan wild lands was an important focus for Threshold. We made major contributions in drawing public attention to the critical wilderness values of Alaska, and helped protect over 120 million acres of wildlands – particularly in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge area of the Brooks Range and North Slope.

Starting in the early 1980s, the organization helped birth a global awareness of the need to protect and safeguard the world’s rapidly diminishing tropical forests. Threshold’s Tropical Forest Project aided the creation of tropical forest coalitions, and helped them to coordinate powerfully with each other.

Threshold also helped raise early funding for many of these grassroots organizations. These coalitions brought together many local protection efforts, and teamed them up with national and international groups trying to accomplish the same goals of cultural conservation and tropical forest protection.

In the 1990s Threshold gave birth to The Sacred Land Trust and a wide range of Awareness Training and wilderness solo programs to support ecologically conscious spiritual development and the direct experience of deep communion with Gaia. Starting with the new millennium, Threshold added a strong emphasis on film, video, book, audio and other media projects by initiating The Way of Nature Productions (www.wayofnature.com).

Currently, Threshold, Inc. calls for raising consciousness by integrating spirituality and ecology. It also supports spreading the realization (and practice) that humans require solitude in pristine natural environments for contemplation and reflection, healing and spiritual renewal.
