James Newsom

Land Protection Specialist

James Newsom with a "big one"!James learned to love nature growing up in then, but no longer, rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and re-discovered his interest and passion for conservation as a corporate lawyer working on several transactions involving alternative energy facilities. He holds an M.S. in Resource Management and Conservation from Antioch University New England (2014), a J.D. from Washington University in St. Louis (2002), and a B.S. from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania (1995).

He lives in a 250-year-old house in Contoocook with his wife and twin sons, and spends his winters skiing, springs refereeing lacrosse, and summers fishing as much as time and his wife, Susanna, allow.
