TerraCorp Member Serves Audubon in Land Conservation Efforts

Audubon welcomes Lincoln Dark, a TerraCorps member serving as a Land Stewardship Coordinator with our conservation staff. Lincoln will also assist our education staff in community engagement and programming. TerraCorps, a newer affiliation of AmeriCorps, was founded on the principles and practices of service with an emphasis on land conservation.

Lincoln graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in Wildlife and Conservation Biology. As an undergrad, Lincoln worked on the Narragansett Bay Coyote Study and conducted soil and microbiology research. This past summer, he monitored a colony of Arctic and Common Terns in Maine with the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
