Several friends and associates found themselves in Eugene last weekend attending the University of Oregon Law School’s annual Public Interest Environmental Law Clinic (PIELC), I didn’t make it this year but I thought I’d share Michael Donnelly’s irreverent account of this year’s gathering for those interested :

    Thanks for posting that Brian. It will be on my calendar for next year. Have any idea if anyone spoke on The Public Trust Doctrine and how it relates to “our” wildlife?

    I think that there was a panel on the Public Trust Doctrine as a matter of fact – I’ll make a couple phone calls & see whether I can get an idea

    Quite a few panels on the PTD, actually.

    http://www.pielc.org/2009/panels.html

    I believe the panels can be downloaded as audio files. Doesn’t look like the 2009 ones are posted yet, though.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
