Audubon Naturalist Society's Flagship Conferences

The first-ever Naturally Latinos Conference will take place Wednesday, September 13, 2017. It will build upon the success of ANS's past conferences welcoming  diverse communities of nature-lovers in the DC region to deepen coalitions and partnerships as we learn about and care for the natural world. With planning committee partners, including the Choose Clean Water Coalition, Chispa/MD League of Conservation Voters, EcoLatinos LLC, National Weather Service, Prince George's County Department of Parks & Recreation, and the EPA Chesapeake Bay Program, we expect a packed and exciting day.

In February 2016, ANS kicked off our inaugural Taking Nature Black Conference. A highly successful and unique event, the conference brought together more than 100 members of the African-American and environmental community from around the DC region. With fantastic speakers, catered food from Black-owned businesses, a Green Jobs Fair, and a networking happy hour, Taking Nature Black led to relationships and follow-up opportunities to engage across communities throughout the year. TNB will repeat in February, 2018, as a biannual event. Read more about Taking Nature Black 2016.
