"Fern Shepard currently works as Senior Officer, International Lands Conservation at the Pew Charitable Trusts. From 1986 to 1997, she was a staff attorney with Earthjustice in our Alaska, Rocky Mountain, and Washington, D.C. offices. Ms. Shepard litigated cases to protect children from the toxin lead in drinking water, farm workers from dangerous pesticides, and African American communities from highway construction in neighboring parklands. Her cases also stopped oil and gas drilling adjacent to Arches National Park and leasing in grizzly bear habitat adjacent to Yellowstone National Park."
