Roylene Comes At Night, NRCS-WA State Conservationist
Roylene Comes At Night, NRCS-Washington's state conservationist.

Roylene Comes At Night is NRCS-Washington's state conservationist, headquartered in Spokane Valley, Washington, and the 5th generation raised on her family’s cattle and horse ranch located on the Blackfeet Nation in northwestern Montana. Her family continues to reside on the original allotment the government assigned to her great-great grandfather, Rides at the Door. Her father’s work in natural resources and her mother’s role as a science teacher contributed to what she felt was her destiny – a career in conservation. More than 35 years later, she is now the senior most state conservationist in the United States, leading the NRCS in Washington, one of the top performing states in the agency.

She has won a multitude of awards for her exceptional leadership, including the 2023 Washington Association of Conservation Districts Presidents Award and being named a 2022 Inland Northwest Woman of the Year by the Spokesman Review.

She graduated from Montana State University where she majored in range science and minored in soil science. Comes At Night actively mentors developing NRCS employees and participates in many Tribal ceremonies. She resides in Spokane with her husband Michael and two cocker spaniels Rex and Cody.
