Third  Rock  Consultants

Services and Specialties

Third Rock's staff of environmental professionals provide a full slate of consulting services ranging from macroinvertebrate identification and endangered species surveys, to restoration design, permitting, and construction. 

     Third Rock Consultants, LLC was established in 2000 by Molly Foree Cummins, a licensed environmental attorney. Since our inception, we've grown to include a diverse staff of some of the region's most respected environmental professionals, serving clients across the Southeastern United States. Third Rock was designed to be different.

     At Third Rock, traits like integrity, authenticity, creativity, and common sense are encouraged and rewarded. Third Rock is home to a collaborative of women and men with diverse environmental specialties and backgrounds, but uniquely similar work ethic, priorities, and approach to life.  What we do and how we do it, matters.  Loyalty matters.  Relationships matter.  Third Rock was designed to be different, and therein lies our strength.
