Representing Rhode Island’s Naturalists

As the only organization with a mission to organize and represent the interests of Rhode Island’s naturalists, RINHS is often called on to provide a “natural history” or a “scientific citizen” perspective on boards and committees. RINHS participation in state committees is sometimes called for in statue; sometimes organizations seek it out on their own. This little-known activity is one of RINHS’s most effective means of contributing to scientifically informed environmental conservation and management.
