Texas Women in Conservation

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. Click here to support this program and help us build the next generation of conservationists!

Due to COVID-19, our next Texas Women in Conservation celebration will take place in Spring 2022.
