Presenter: Carleton Montgomery, Pinelands Preservation Alliance

Moderated by Rick Bushnell of ReClam the Bay.
The New Jersey Pinelands encompasses interior forests, estuaries and barrier islands across almost one-quarter of New Jersey. Here we find one of the Eastern Seaboard’s few surviving wildernesses, unique communities of plants and wildlife, great scenic beauty – and America’s most innovative conservation and growth management plan. Carleton Montgomery, executive director of the Pinelands Preservation Alliance, will talk with us about how the Pinelands conservation laws work, how well they are working, and how people are using a variety of strategies and activities – including art – to make sure the Pinelands survives as one of Earth’s great natural treasures.
About the Presenter:
Carleton became the executive director of the Pinelands Preservation Alliance in 1998. An attorney by training, he practiced law at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson in its Washington, D.C. office for 12 years, the last four years as a partner in the firm’s litigation practice. Carleton made a major change in his career and way of life when he left the law firm to dedicate himself to protecting the Pinelands as PPA’s executive director. Carleton is also very involved in statewide environmental policy work. He is a founding trustee of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters and of Rethink Energy New Jersey.
