A Force for Nature

John Adams, Co-founder, Natural Resources Defense Council
Patricia Adams, Co-author, A Force for Nature: The Story of NRDC and the Fight to Save Our Planet
Lucy Blake, Former President, California League of Conservation Voters; Winner, MacArthur Award

The Natural Resources Defense Council was founded in 1970 by a group of law students and attorneys at the forefront of the environmental movement, including John Adams. Since then, NRDC lawyers have helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws and continue to provide legal services in support of environmental issues of all kinds. The Adams’ new book is an account of the 40-year human and ecological struggle to preserve our planet.
