Even in ele­men­tary school, Grif­fin An­der­sen demon­strated tremen­dous com­mit­ment when he took charge of his school’s salmon en­hance­ment pro­gram. Ever since, he has been ac­tive: as a youth am­bas­sador and as a fundraiser, in­clud­ing for the Mos­som Creek salmon hatch­ery and en­vi­ron­men­tal ed­u­ca­tion cen­tre when it was de­stroyed by fire. In­spired by the ex­pe­ri­ence, he cre­ated a web­site called Wish­ful Think­ing that con­tin­ues to sup­port a wide va­ri­ety of non-profit en­vi­ron­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions.
