On April 23, 2019, The Santa Barbara Independent graciously featured an excerpt of Marc's book, In Love with Earth, in their Earth Day issue. This excerpt details the important moment that changed Marc’s life forever, setting him on a new course to pursue environmental law.

Thank you to The Santa Barbara Independent for this lovely feature.
