Lindsay J. Brice is a Policy Director at the National Audubon Society; her work focuses on the Upper Mississippi Flyway (Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri). Lindsay has over 20 years of experience in nonprofit and government sectors, including significant state level policy success around sexual violence response. She is delighted to align her personal interests in wildlife and conservation with her work in law and policy. Lindsay graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Women’s Studies.
After work with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources as a wildland firefighter and a Minnesota Conservation Corps crew leader, she pursued graduate level courses in fire ecology. Lindsay went on to receive her J.D. from Hamline University School of Law (now Mitchell Hamline). During and immediately after law school Lindsay worked on a federal case brought by the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe of Michigan to gain permanent recognition of their 1855 and 1864 reservation boundaries; this settlement remains in place and is a model for boundary disputes nationwide. Lindsay and her partner divide their time between St. Paul, Minnesota and rural Wisconsin. She is an avid traveler who particularly enjoys canoeing, camping, and other adventures focused on animals, birds, and wilderness.
Lindsay’s favorite bird: Black-capped Chickadee
