Prof. W. William Weeks, Director of the Conservation Law Clinic, has been elected the Chairman of the Indiana Sustainable Natural Resources Task Force.
The CLC, in collaboration with American Bird Conservancy (ABC), recently submitted comments on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's initial plan to fast-track wind energy projects within a 200-mile-wide corridor through the Great Plains from Canada to the Texas coast. The corridor roughly follows the migratory path of the federally endangered Whooping Crane.
The Conservation Law Center was awarded a $150,000 grant by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust (NMPCT) over a two year period to expand its freshwater conservation work, focusing particularly on the Wabash and White Rivers in Indiana. This grant is the third grant awarded to the CLC by the NMPCT.
