The Texas Women in Conservation Luncheon featuring the 2022 Terry Hershey Awards was held in San Antonio on Tuesday, April 19, 2022 at the Witte Museum. This year's outstanding honorees include Betty Bueché and Jeanette Honermann. 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.

Proceeds from the event support conservation education, notably Audubon’s Conservation Leaders Program for Young Women, which provides opportunities for high school students to become more involved in environmental science. In this innovative program, students 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. 

Thank you to our 2022 event sponsors:
