Rondal moved to Nevada City in 2012 to join his life partner Julie Carvlle. He has recently retired from his private business as a Conservation Land Consultant. For 20 years, he represented private and corporate landowners, public-benefit non-profits, foundations, and public agencies to conserve natural and cultural resources on California’s Northcoast. He has been instrumental in the development of numerous conservation easements and fee title acquisitions, aiding in securing public and private funds for protections and preservation of over 40,000 acres of forestlands and coastal properties. He also lived for thirty years in Whale Gulch, an off grid, remote community on California’s Lost Coast. People there were homesteaders dedicated to sustainably re-inhabiting wild and cut over lands in Northern Mendocino County and the upper Mattole River watershed.
He was the Executive Director and the co-founder of Sanctuary Forest, a land and water trust, and Vice President of the Board of Directors and co-founder of the Nortcoast Regional Land Trust, covering Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity counties. He still works closely with the Intertribal Sinkyone Wilderness Council serving as a friend and consultant. For several years he was featured on a weekly, live segment of public radio station KMUD. His program, called the Mattole Patrol, was a monologue commenting on events of the past week of living with nature and interviews with individuals passionately involved in ecology, science, and environmental activism.
He is allied by a deep personal belief in the Spirit of Nature and by the strength of his conviction and dedication to social, economic, and environmental justice.
