In 2005, Audubon Naturalist Society’s Crowder-Messersmith Fund awarded Women for Conservation its first grant. That grant helped the organization launch its important work on projects at the intersection of women’s empowerment and environmental sustainability in Colombia. Now, fifteen years later, a second grant has been awarded. Join us on October 16 at 7 p.m. as Founder and Executive Director Sara Lara will discuss Women for Conservation, the organization’s successes to date, and the future of empowering women to protect endangered wildlife and their habitats through innovative projects in biodiversity conservation, family planning, and sustainable livelihoods. The success of Women for Conservation is an example of the power of Crowder-Messersmith small grants to affect people’s lives and protect the environment.
