Subject: [MASSBIRD] Scott Melvin Memorial Fund - NHESP
Scott Melvin, former Senior Zoologist with the Natural Heritage and
Endangered Species Program, was an internationally recognized leader in
Piping Plover conservation. For over 30 years, Scott led the
Commonwealth’s efforts to protect Piping Plovers.

The Massachusetts Outdoor Heritage
Foundation<>worked with the Natural
History and Endangered Species Program to establish the Scott Melvin
Memorial Fund Fund to honor Scott’s memory and his enduring
contributions to wildlife conservation. Funds will be used to advance
coastal waterbird conservation, in particular by providing plover and
tern internship opportunities and small research grants to graduate
students entering the field.
