In this week’s edition of Earth Matters Nathan Newcomer interviews Judy Calman – staff attorney for New Mexico Wilderness Alliance. They discuss the importance of having a staff attorney working for a small conservation organization, in addition to the recent attention Gov. Susanna Martinez is receiving after supporting the possibility of selling off our public land in New Mexico.
They also discuss other issues within New Mexico including the new National Monuments designated in the state, as well as all of the resource management plans that are available to public comment right now, and ones that are soon to come.
Judy Calman moved to New Mexico in 2001, inspired by a life-long fascination with the West. After completing degrees in Biology and Philosophy and working on several political campaigns, she realized her true passion to be environmental policy. She completed her law degree at the University of New Mexico, as well as a Masters in Environmental Law and Policy at the Vermont Law School.
