 Brief course description

Lindsay Wildlife’s Conservation Icons is bringing Joel Reynolds, of the Natural Resources Defense Council to Walnut Creek as a premiere speaker for the second annual Conservation Icons series to talk about Defending the Earth.

Since 1980, Reynolds has specialized in complex law-reform litigation, arguing cases on behalf of environmental and community groups at all levels of the federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. He has also led several of the NRDC’s largest campaigns: to preserve the birthing lagoon of gray whales in Baja California; to protect the California State Park at San Onofre; to reduce underwater noise pollution that threatens ocean wildlife; and, most recently, to halt the construction of the environmentally destructive Pebble Mine in Alaska’s Bristol Bay.

Since 2012, he has served as chair of the Tejon Ranch Conservancy, one of California’s largest land trusts. He is a graduate of Columbia Law School.
