We’re dedicated to conserving the nature of the Northeast. Our mission is to work with others to protect fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats from Virginia north to Maine.
We’re checking in with our past interns to find out what they’ve been up to since their last internship with us. Find out where they are now since they fled the nest!
Every Wednesday, we share a beautiful photo from Mother Nature paired with conservation wisdom.
Scott Comings’ conservation path began with a year-long, outdoor education program in ninth grade. Today he channels his passion for the natural world as Associate Director of the Rhode Island chapter of The Nature Conservancy. In partnership with the Service, Comings is overseeing Hurricane Sandy-funded projects in Rhode Island such as removal of White Rock dam on the Pawcatuck River.
