Thank you so much for joining the 100 Women for the Wild! Our goal for this group is to engage more women in conservation science, raise funds for our on-the-ground conservation projects, and set aside money for scholarships in our Emerging Female Leader Fund.
But how? With your help!
We’ve put together this toolkit to help you get the most out of 100 Women for the Wild.
First things first, if you are on social media, be sure to join our secret Facebook group. Through this Facebook group, we can stay connected and continue to share ideas and opportunities.
Below are some other ways we can all work to grow the group and ensure that more women are able to engage in conservation science:
Attend or Host a 100 Women for the Wild Event
Do you have a group of friends who you think might be interested in joining the group? Why not host a party? We’ll provide the information, materials, and a staff member to answer questions if you provide the space and friends. Contact Tehri to set up your own event.
The 100 Women for the Wild are also invited to participate in our Wednesdays in the Wild events. Every fourth Wednesday of the month, we will be planning a different educational and/or fun outing. Join us and invite your friends! These events are free to members and non-members alike:
