For their qualifying summer work, Savage focused on connections between land conservation and imperiled species with the Center for Biological Diversity, while Shell worked on public land issues on the Colorado Plateau with Earthjustice’s Rocky Mountain office.

The Wyss Foundation is a private, charitable organization dedicated to land conservation. The Scholars Program identifies and supports a new generation of land conservation leaders annually; Lewis & Clark Law School is one of a select few law schools in the country to be part of the program.
