Gould Native Plant Program
The Lisa Lofland Gould Native Plant Program was created to honor Lisa Gould, Senior Scientist and first Executive Director of RINHS. The program, created jointly with the Rhode Island Wild Plant Society and the URI College of Environmental and Life Sciences is an annual event focusing on native plants, their biology and conservation. Funds for the program come from an endowment created in Lisa’s honor and invested with the Rhode Island Foundation.

Naturalist Skills Workshops
Naturalist Skills Workshops are held irregularly throughout the year and are chances for small groups of beginner and intermediate naturalists to work together with more advanced naturalists to develop their skills with particular groups of organisms. Workshops focus on species identification, field survey tricks and techniques, the relevant literature, and other tools used to find, identify, and curate specimens. The workshops are hands-on and use collections, equipment, and reference literature.
