Karen Hadden

Ms Hadden has served as the executive director of the SEED [Sustainable Energy and Economic Development] Coalition since 2000. Her work has focused on the intersection of energy and environmental concerns, and has included efforts to block coal plants, to reduce mercury emissions from power facilities, to warn the public about mercury-laden fish consumption, to organize opposition to the re-licensing of the Comanche Peak and South Texas nuclear power plants, to support construction of solar panel arrays, to improve energy efficiency and conservation in affordable housing, and to fight misguided proposals to transport and dispose radioactive waste. From 1980 to 1999, before beginning her work as an advocate at the SEED Coalition, she taught science to middle and high school students, leading courses in physics, biology, astronomy, anatomy, physiology and chemistry, sponsoring science clubs and fairs, and organizing field trips.

Shannon Davies

Dr. Davies holds a PhD in American Civilization from the University of Texas at Austin, and has had a career in editing and publishing books and journals, many of them about natural resource and conservation topics. She served as the Director of Texas A&M University Press, where she earlier worked as Editor-in-Chief and as the Merrick Editor for the Natural Environment. Prior to working at Texas A&M, she served as Founding Editor and Publisher of Texas Birds, a publication of the Texas Ornithological Society, as well as the Science Editor and Editorial Fellow for the University of Texas Press. In those capacities, she has worked with a number of funders and dozens of authors to bring scores of books and articles about the natural world to the public. The works have touched on a variety of conservation subjects, including water, wildlife, energy, public lands, forests, agriculture, and environmental history. She has also helped support writers through her service on the boards of two residencies for artists: the Madrono Ranch: A Center for Writing, Art, and the Environment, and the Thinking like a Mountain Foundation.

Bill Carr

Mr. Carr is a noted field botanist who has worked on plant inventories, surveys and protection efforts for Texas Parks and Wildlife (Natural Heritage Program), the Nature Conservancy of Texas, and his own firm, Acme Botanical Services. He has collected more than 37,000 plant specimens, with more than 15,000 catalogued at the herbarium at the University of Texas at Austin, to improve the understanding of plant distributions across the Southwest. As well, he was a co-author, with Jackie Poole, Jason Singhurst, and Dana Price on the reference volume, Rare Plants of Texas (Texas A&M University Press 2007), and has made contributions to a number of journals, including Lundelia, Sida, and the Journal of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas.

Lynn Lowrey

Mr. Lowrey was a noted plantsman long based in Houston, credited with introducing native plants to commercial horticulture, and to the landscapes surrounding Texas homes, institutional and business buildings. At this point, we do not have any direct recordings or writings of Mr. Lowrey. The history of Mr. Lowrey draws heavily on the reminiscences of his fellow plant collectors, propagators, gardeners, and many friends and admirers. Please see the video below for a compilation of their thoughts.

David Creech

David Creech is a plant explorer and collector, a professor of horticulture at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, and director of its Mast Arboretum, which has diverse collections of forest, bog, and desert plants.

Here he discusses his memories of the life, career and influence of the Houston-based nurseryman and plant explorer, Lynn Lowrey.

John Henry Faulk

Well known as a folklorist, as a radio and TV personality of great wit, and as a courageous fighter against the blackmailing and blackballing of the Red Scare, John Henry Faulk also had a strong interest in environmental protection. In his hometown of Austin, he spoke out against the construction and channelizing in and along Barton Creek, and other sensitive areas. He also was a noted opponent of the efforts in the 1960s and 1970s to overpump the Ogallala Aquifer of the Panhandle, to move water from east Texas to west Texas in a system of canals and pipelines, and particularly, to dredge the Trinity River as a barge canal to Dallas. He cited similarities to the Red Scare, in the hyperbole and name-calling that was thrown against environmentalists who questioned these projects.

Dan Lay

Mr. Lay was a wildlife biologist who lived in Nacogdoches. One of the first graduates of the Wildlife Management School at Texas A&M, and among the first professional biologists hired by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, he saw remarkable changes in the understanding and protection of wildlife in the state. While his career was mostly spent at the Parks and Wildlife Department (including stints as Wildlife Restoration director, statewide coordinator for mitigation, and regional director of TPWD offices in Beaumont and Lufkin), he also worked for the General Land Office in developing a Coastal Management program. In more recent years, he also worked as a wildlife biology consultant, private forestland manager, and author (he wrote over 50 journal articles, and co-wrote the award-winning book, the Land of Bears and Honey, with Dr. Joe Truett).

Richard LeTourneau

Mr. LeTourneau is a machinist and metal fabricator in Longview, but has also been active in hunting, fishing, camping, and protecting forestlands and free-flowing streams in east Texas. He has worked particularly hard on opposition to the Little Cypress Reservoir and the Waters Bluff / Belzora Landing Reservoirs, and in seeking more environmentally sensitive and financially prudent alternatives to reservoir construction through participation in the Senate Bill 1 Northeast Texas Regional Water Planning Group, by serving on the board of the Texas Conservation Alliance, (formerly, the Texas Comittee for Natural Resources and via founding and leading a new non-profit group, Friends of the Sabine.

John Bryant

The Honorable John Bryant has served in both the Texas and the United States House of Representatives, as a Democrat representing constituents in Dallas. Throughout, he was known as a staunch environmentalist, with consistently high ratings from the League of Conservation Voters and particular strength in forest protection efforts, as in his sponsorship of the Forest Biodiversity Act and his leadership in getting more than 34,000 acres in East Texas designated as wilderness. Mr. Bryant is now retired from Congress and works as an attorney on toxic tort claims and other cases.

Fred Dahmer

Mr. Dahmer worked in electronics for many years, selling, building, and repairing equipment, particularly sound gear. However, throughout his life he also had a strong interest in Lake Caddo, the 36,000-acre lake and bald cypress swamp in northeast Texas formed by the Big Cypress River. Formed by a 100-mile log raft that sometimes reached 25 feet high, Lake Caddo is unique as the only natural lake in Texas (all the others have been formed in recent years by man-made dams). It is also noted for its many fish species (71 at last count), and diverse bird population (over 300 endemic or migrant species are known). As well, the Lake is known for its colorful history of steamboat traffic, fishing, pearling, offshore oil drilling, and hunting history. For all these aspects, Mr. Dahmer was an authority for collecting and recounting these facts and tales (many of which are in his book, Caddo Was..). Further, he had been active for many years in trying to show the value and need to protect the Lake from dubious proposals to channelize, dam and otherwise develop Caddo. Mr. Dahmer and his wife, Loucille, are remembered in the Nature Conservancy’s gift and dedication of the 1000-acre Fred and Loucille Dahmer Caddo Lake Preserve.
