No one has traipsed around the many little nooks of the Squam watershed more than Rick. Consequently, no one knows more about Squam’s natural history than Dr. Van de Poll. What is fascinating to me about Rick’s knowledge is that it is not limited to just birds, mammals, or botany. It’s everything…the underlying bedrock, the glacial history, weather events, impacts of man, connections to adjacent natural communities, biological evolution, and more. Rick’s insights take everything into consideration, resulting in a greater understanding of our little corner of the universe.
Roger Larochelle, Executive Director of The Squam Lakes Conservation Society
Rick is a long-time supporter of the Loon Preservation Committee and came to our aid when a pedestrian bridge on the Markus Wildlife Sanctuary was undermined by storms. He assigned the appropriate stream bank stabilization, got it permitted, contacted contractors, and supervised the repair on budget and on time. His practical knowledge and ability to navigate regulatory requirements complements his skills as one of the preeminent field biologists in the state.

Testimonials From Private Landowners
Dr. Van de Poll is beyond doubt the most professional, knowledgeable and get the job done type of consultant. His knowledge of the natural ecosystem is second to none. We hired Rick to carry out a Natural Resource Inventory of our family land and he provided beyond our expectations.
