Two new north coast forest protectors! Tom Wheeler and Lucy Allen recently joined the EPIC team to advocate for the science-based protection of northwest California’s forests. Using their expertise in environmental law, Tom and Lucy will help ensure that EPIC continues to fulfill its role as environmental watchdogs in defense of nature.
EPIC is focused on connecting working and wildland forests into whole healthy landscapes for flourishing nature and wildlife, in order to safeguard our valuable living resources in a changing climate for current and future generations.
Prior to law school, Tom attended Green Mountain College in Vermont, graduating with a Bachelor of Art in Philosophy & Environmental Studies. When he’s not nerding out over the Endangered Species Act (his all-time favorite law), Tom is probably plunking the banjo, playing ping-pong with wife, Jenna, or petting his cats, Fatty and Trim.
We are grateful to long-time staff attorney, Sharon Duggan, for her commitment to mentoring the next generation of environmental advocates!
