Unearthing and processesing information, then writing it up clearly are skills Erica Gies has deployed on projects for a range of clients.


The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread

The Johnson Foundation tackles a variety of issues, including the environment.

The Trust for Public Land

Erica Gies has researched and written white papers and articles for The Trust for Public Land, a nonprofit land conservation organization. She read hundreds of articles and reports, then synthesized the information into concise, current prose. Written for parks and open space advocates and professionals, the white papers are intended to make the case for parks as a wise community investment.

Blue Planet Run

This 2007 photography book by Rick Smolan and Jennifer Erwitt, the team that created a whole series of “Day in the Life” photo books, was their first project focused on environmental issues. Erica Gies helped to generate story ideas about water issues around the world and to research background information to assist the photographers.
