Meet our Keynote Speaker, Clay Henderson
Clay Henderson has had a long career; he has worked as an environmental lawyer, educator, and writer. He has served as president of the Florida Audubon Society as well as the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation. Until his retirement in 2019, Clay served as Executive Director of the Institute for Water and Environmental Resilience at Stetson University. He was elected to two terms on the Volusia County Council and served on the Florida Constitution Revision Commission.
Henderson is most associated with wildlife and land conservation. He sponsored most of the environmental provisions in Florida’s Constitution including the creation of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and co-authored the Florida Water and Land Legacy Initiative, the largest conservation funding program in our nation’s history. He was also a leader in the development of Florida’s signature land acquisition programs including Preservation 2000, Florida Forever, and Florida Communities Trust, and he negotiated the acquisition of over 300,000 acres of conservation lands.
Clay most recently authored Forces of Nature, an environmental history of Florida. Drawing on historical sources, interviews, and his own long career in environmental law, Henderson recounts the many small victories over time that helped Florida create several units of the national park system, nearly thirty national wildlife refuges, and one of the best state park systems in the country.
The Barn is nestled in the heart of Palm Valley in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, in a nature-based, casual setting, with a beautifully adorned backdrop of tall sprawling oaks and open space.
