He’s always enjoyed spending time in nature, but was inspired to pursue a career in conservation when he visited the delicate ecosystems of Hawaii. He is particularly passionate about using native plants to restore and heal our ecosystems.

Will graduated from DeSales University with a BS in Biology. He is currently pursuing an MS in Conservation Biology at Antioch University New England. In his free time, he enjoys rock climbing and birding.

During his internship with the Harris Center, Will will be assisting with a variety of bird research initiatives, including nighthawk migration monitoring, migratory raptor counts at the Pack Monadnock Raptor Observatory, and mapping potential nest box sites for American Kestrels.
