Corey W. Campbell is the Communications Director and Volunteer Coordinator for CREW Land & Water Trust. Corey W. Campbell is a native Floridian and life-long lover of the outdoors. From a young age, Corey spent countless hours exploring real Florida, from its swamps to its sandy beaches.  As a journalist and photographer, Corey created feature stories highlighting Florida’s natural history and resources. Corey spent three years working with the National Park Service and Big Cypress Institute and living in the Everglades before forming his own company, Nature with Corey, an environmental advocacy organization supporting conservation, awareness and stewardship. Most recently, before joining CREW, Corey was a Veterans Florida Fellow, researching best management practices for conservation in agricultural and aquatic habitats at UF/IFAS Southwest Florida Research and Education Center.

Rory Cushen has joined the CREW Trust as our 2023 Spring Intern. He is graduating this semester from FGCU with a B.A. in Environmental Studies. He is interested in learning more about the environments in SWFL and how to interpret this information to audiences of all ages. He is currently a Student Naturalist at FGCU, leading field trips for Colloquium students at local parks such as here at CREW. After graduation, he hopes to join the workforce within the realm of agriculture and the environment, with hopes to inspire balance between the two while meeting the dietary needs of our country. Rory looks forward to meeting our CREW Trust volunteers at programs like Soil Rocks and Colloquium!

Feel free to contact Rory with any questions at intern@crewtrust.org.
