Texas Women in Conservation

**SPECIAL NOTE: The 2020 Texas Women in Conservation Luncheon has been rescheduled to Wednesday, October 28 in Dallas. Thank you for your understanding and care!**

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, and to inspire the next generation of female conservationists. The program includes the annual Audubon Texas Women in Conservation Luncheon featuring The Terry Hershey Awards, and Audubon’s Conservation Leaders Program for Young Women. 

Audubon Texas will host the sixth annual Texas Women in Conservation Luncheon on Wednesday, October 28, in Dallas. This year, we are thrilled to have Margaret Keliher and Mary Suhm as the 2020 Luncheon Co-Chairs, and honored to recognize four esteemed 2020 Terry Hershey Award recipients: Anne Brown, Janette Monear, Julie Shackelford, and Gail Thomas (read more here). These women exemplify the very best in conservation leadership and we are proud to recognize their achievements.

Please enjoy this sneak peek of the 2020 Terry Hershey Award recipients.

Proceeds from the event support both Audubon’s Conservation Leaders Program for Young Women, which provides opportunities for girls to become more involved in environmental science. In this innovative program, girls participate in hands-on nature-based programs at our three nature centers in Texas, as well as conduct extensive field research in nearby natural resource areas. The program culminates in a community science camping trip where outdoor science education is delivered from Audubon Texas educators, with additional training from conservation partners. Due to the generosity and dedication of our donors, this program is managed at no cost to the participants.
