Larry Ruth was born in Berkeley. In the third grade, in celebration of a certain winter holiday, he wrote a play about elves on strike, which was performed by his class.
He later earned several degrees at the University of California, Berkeley, taught environmental policy, and worked on campus for many years. Publications include articles on federal wildland fire policy, ecosystem sustainability, forest policy in the Sierra Nevada, and adaptive management. Research and professional interests include ecologically sensitive approaches to resource management, climate change adaptation, fire policy, and regulatory effectiveness.
Larry is a consultant in environmental and natural resources policy, and enjoys the remnants of the wild. He lives in Berkeley.
