Terra-Petra was a proud sponsor of the 31st Annual Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite® October 13 – 15. Produced by the California Lawyers Association, the annual conference is recognized nationally as the state’s largest and most prestigious gathering of leaders in environmental, land use, and natural resources law.
The conference was held live and in person at the Tenaya Lodge in Yosemite National Park, after two consecutive years of virtual attendance.
Leaders in environmental, land use, and natural resources law attended with the opportunity to receive 11.5 Hours MCLE credits. Education sessions included topics and discussions, such as Federal Action on Environmental Justice: A Conversation with EPA’s Martha Guzman, and an informal talk with Attorney Jan Chatten-Brown, this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient. Chatten-Brown gave a firsthand account of her stellar career and contributions to environmental law.
Terra-Petra Team in Attendance
Terra-Petra’s Vice President, Justin Conaway, Director of Field Operations, Dan Valdez, and Senior Environmental Engineer Bahar Amoli attended, representing our Environmental Engineering Division.
Our Terra-Petra team enjoyed meeting and visiting with some of the nation’s top environmental officials. Which included attorneys and other environmental engineering professionals. They also enjoyed the outdoor highlights in the beautiful Yosemite National Park, including sight seeing in and around El Capitan, Half Dome and hiking Mount Hoffman.
Justin Conaway commented, “This conference offers such a great environment to connect with our clients on a deeper level by inviting spouses, children and dogs to attend. Getting to know some more personal things about the people we work with really humanizes us and allows for a more comfortable natural environment to socialize. This conference is a must-attend for me every year for these reasons.”
