Name: Tayt Weingarten
School: Lewis and Clark Law School
Hometown: Portland, Oregon
What brought you to Crag? I’m very interested in protecting our environment and am working towards getting my J.D. in Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy Law. I’m excited to join Crag Law since I want to practice environmental advocacy while preserving Oregon’s beautiful resources.
What are your environmental/legal interests? I am interested in public lands and forest law, the endangered species act, and addressing climate change in both international policy and domestic environmental law.
Favorite place in the PNW: Spending time at the Oregon coast is spiritually renewing, especially visiting Agate Beach and Manzanita. I love surfing, walking with my dogs, and biking on the sand.
Favorite book: Orlando: A Biography by Virginia Woolf
Favorite quote: “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” –Maya Angelou
