Jim Richardson


How long have you been an IAM Board member?

I’m not sure. Maybe for 6 or 7 years.

Why did you become an IAM Board member?

Ag mitigation was something I knew very little about and I thought this would be a great place to learn and contribute at the same time.

What do you feel is the greatest opportunity for landowners to participate with IAM?

I feel that participation in IAM by selling an easement on marginal farmland is a great way to get the maximum value out of that land and at the same time make a great contribution to water quality issues.

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

I like to play golf, hunt morels, visit National Forests and Monuments.
