Chuck Dayton

I am a retired environmental lawyer who practiced in Minneapolis for 40 years. I live in Waynesville, NC in spring and fall, and in Minnesota in summer and winter. I lobbied for many of Minnesota’s environmental laws and led the fight in the 1970s to increase the Wilderness protection for the Boundary Waters Wilderness. I was named Environmentalist of the 70’s Decade by the North Star Chapter of the Sierra Club. Since my retirement, I have worked with environmental groups on energy and global warming issues, and I’m a frequent speaker on climate change. My children’s photo book, Secrets of the Loons, was published in 2020 by the Minnesota Historical Society.
