Peter Clay in California

  • Age: 64

  • Occupation: Conservation Consultant

  • Hometown: Chicago (although now living in Des Moines)

  • Marching Schedule

I marched from L.A. to Parker, AZ (March 1st to March 24th) and from Greenfield, IA to Des Moines, IA (August 8th to 11th); I will be visiting the March in West Branch, IA on August 21st and I plan on attending the big rally in Chicago, IL on September 6th. Finally, I will be marching from Pittsburgh, PA to Washington D.C. for the final 16 days of the March during the last half of October. I also hope to join other climate marchers in New York City for The People’s Climate March on September 21st.

  • Fun Info

My walking speed is average, I have had zero blisters so far (probably due to using “Hike Goo”) and I have had no injuries. I loved seeing bighorn sheep along old route 62 in California as we marched towards Joshua Tree and I loved the night we spent at The Glass Outhouse near Twenty-nine Palms just before we headed into 100 miles of Mojave Desert. Such crazy, fun art installations! (Helpful tip: Don’t use a glass outhouse at night! Even though the outside is mirrored, you WILL be visible when it is dark!)

  • Interests:

Great Apes and African rainforest conservation; whitewater kayaking; cross-country and alpine skiing; Celtic music and poetry; time in forests and other natural environments; silence.

  • Why Peter wants to be adopted:

If you adopt me I promise to be a wonderful correspondent and to keep you updated on my experiences on and with the March. And really, if this works out, I wouldn’t mind being adopted for longer than the March. Just saying…..

The Great March for Climate Action gives me a pathway for hope and a place to stand with others working hard to protect the living earth. Please support The March by adopting me! I completed the California portion and part of Iowa and I’ll be back as much as I am able but for sure will be with The March from Pittsburgh to Washington D.C. and I need your support.
