Texas Women in Conservation

2018 Terry Hershey Award nominations are being accepted now.

Audubon's Texas Women in Conservation Program debuted in 2015 to honor the role that women play in the conservation field in the Lone Star State. A key highlight of the new program is the Terry Hershey Award which recognizes outstanding women leaders. In addition to the award, the new program supports opportunities in Texas for girls and women to become more involved in conservation and environmental sciences and engages women on important issues related to conservation in Texas.

Audubon is looking for Texas women who embody the spirit and passion for conservation of the famed Terry Hershey, who has been called “a force of nature for nature”. Audubon Texas will host the fourth annual Texas Women in Conservation Luncheon in Houston on March 29, 2018, and present an esteemed group of women leaders in today’s conservation movement throughout the Lone Star State with the Terry Hershey Texas Women in Conservation Award.

Nominations are accepted from individuals and organizations who complete and submit the nomination application by Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 5PM.
