RICHARD JOYCE is a naturalist and conservationist.  He lives in midcoast Maine, less than a mile from a small “salter” stream.  Richard has a bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies from Bowdoin College and has done ecological fieldwork and stewardship for the Maine Natural Areas Program, Maine Conservation Corps, and The Nature Conservancy (TNC).  As a member of TNC's Stream Barrier Assessment crew, he collected data on road-stream crossings in the Moose, Dead, Allagash, and upper St. John watersheds.  A native biodiversity specialist, Richard led a species inventory of native bees in southwest Nicaragua, contributed to the Maine Bumble Bee Atlas, participated in multiple Audubon Christmas Bird Counts, and propagated a compliment of native plants in a small backyard nursery.  He also enjoys snorkeling small streams, watching and photographing native fish in their natural habitats.  Richard can be reached at
