CAPR San Juan’s March 2nd, 2010 speaker will be Norm Macleod. Please join us for an educational evening and dinner at the Grange Hall at 5:30pm.
Norman MacLeod is the president and CEO of Gaelic Wolf Consulting, a natural resource policy design and Internet strategy firm with locations in Hockessin, Delaware and Port Townsend Washington. His firm’s clientele, past and present, include Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, the Washington Department of Agriculture, Forester Communications, and more.
He has worked with natural resource issues in the Klamath Basin, throughout Washington State and beyond. His current projects include evaluating the interface between climate change policy and its impacts on land use regulation and access to water resources.
Frustration with the level of quality in the sciences used to justify legislation, rules and regulations, Norm and a group of senior scientists recently founded the Environmental Sciences Peer Review Institute (ESPRI), where he currently serves as executive director. ESPRI is already working internationally on the science issues that impact us locally.
Norm is a founding member of the Olympic Stewardship Foundation, with a goal of putting conservation on the ground for future generations, and firmly believes that the people working and residing in our rural areas are the very best stewards of the ecosystems they live in . . . and that government regulation is a poor substitute for the individual’s knowledgeable care.
