Avery Davis Lamb is student, scholar, and activist, studying the intersection of Christianity and the environment at Duke Divinity School and the Nicholas School of the Environment.
Avery grew up in Topeka, Kansas, a city surrounded by farms, grasslands, and prairies. It was in these wide-open spaces he developed a deep love for agriculture, wilderness, and the beauty of Creation. He traded prairie vistas for ocean vistas when he moved to Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. At Pepperdine, Avery cultivated his interest in the land, studying Biology and Ecology, with a minor in Sustainability.
Avery has worked for the US Geological Survey, doing stream ecology research in the Santa Monica Mountains, Sojourners, where he focused on environmental organizing and advocacy, and Interfaith Power and Light, where he mobilized faith communities in support of local and federal climate campaigns.
