Mr. Russell owns and operates a video and slide educational business in Huntsville, Texas, but has long been involved in protecting national forests and natural areas in east Texas from excessive logging, burning, herbicide use, roadbuilding and other forms of development.

Not only has he been an active advocate for sustainable use and protection of public lands, but Mr. Russell has also invested in buying and protecting forestlands himself, using those private lands to investigate less harmful ways of management.
