The NRDC is the nation's most effective environmental action group, combining the grassroots power of 1.3 million members and online activists with the courtroom clout and expertise of more than 350 lawyers, scientists and other professionals. John Adams served as NRDC's executive director and later president from 1970 until 2006. Patricia Adams is a teacher, writer, and author of three books and numerous articles.
