My name’s Tom, and as an SCA outreach assistant with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s communications office in the northeast, I’ll be sharing stories with you these next few months.

I’m a senior English major at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and besides working with the Service, I’m an editor at the student newspaper and perform with UMass’s premiere sketch comedy troupe. I’m looking forward to talking to you about conservation news and entertaining, educating nature stories.
