Anne Castle: “Let’s see if we can find another way”

Ahead of speaking at Iowa State University’s 2017 Ronald Lecture in Environmental Conservation, I spoke with Anne Castle, senior fellow at the Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy and Environment at the University of Colorado Boulder School of Law, about her career experiences.

Sitting on the banks of the Colorado River, accompanied by the crackle and glow of a campfire, Anne Castle recites Robert Service poems from memory to a group from the United States Geological Survey (USGS). She sports an easy smile, short and sporty gray locks, and a purposeful composure. And when she speaks, it is simply a pleasure to listen.

Castle and her former USGS deputy, Lori Caramanian, are volunteering on an eight-day raft trip down the river, part of a vegetation monitoring trip conducted by the agency in September 2016. It’s their fourth such trip together – but their first since leaving their government positions. Castle is not a poet nor a scientist, but a lawyer turned public servant, always looking for a way to contribute.
