Terry Hershey Award & Honorees

In honor of this well-known “force of nature for nature,” Audubon is honored to name its Texas Women in Conservation Award for Terry Hershey. Mrs. Hershey has devoted and invested substantial passion, time, energy, and resources in significant conservation projects in Houston and throughout Texas. Mrs. Hershey is a former member of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission and a founding board member of Buffalo Bayou Preservation Association, Houston Audubon Society, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Research Center, The Park People, and Urban Harvest. She also is a past board member for Audubon Texas, the National Audubon Society, National Recreation and Park Association, and The Trust for Public Land.

Audubon Texas will host the third annual Texas Women in Conservation Luncheon in San Antonio on April 13, 2017, during which an esteemed group of outstanding women leaders in today’s conservation movement throughout the Lone Star State will be presented with the 2017 Terry Hershey Texas Women in Conservation Award.
