Texas Women in Conservation website
Houston Audubon is delighted to introduce the Texas Women in Conservation Program featuring an inaugural celebratory luncheon and the Terry Hershey Award. On February 5, 2015, conservationists from across the Lone Star State will gather at River Oaks Country Club in Houston to celebrate extraordinary Texas women who work tirelessly to improve our environment. We certainly hope you will join us.
In 2015, Texas proudly joins National Audubon’s Women in Conservation movement, founded 10 years ago by Allison Whipple Rockefeller who will serve as luncheon keynote. The purpose of the overarching program is to underline the influence of women in conservation, to support girls and younger women in the environmental sciences and to engage women in important conservation issues.
Audubon Texas, in partnership with Houston Audubon as host chapter sponsor, is holding the first awards luncheon to honor four exceptional Texas women who have shown a deep commitment to protecting our native landscapes and wildlife. [More]
