2022 Conservation CafésEnjoy a fun evening, learn about conservation topics, and support ANS!

Event Details

Expand your horizons with the monthly Conservation Café series. We will discuss science, nature, policy, journalism, art, spirituality, justice, and so much more as we explore all the ways that people work towards conservation and environmental protection. Meet and learn from inspiring speakers and ask them questions live.

Click the link for each event below to see more information and register. Cafés are held Jan – June and Sep – Nov. All programs run via Zoom, 7-8:30 pm.

Registration fees ($5-15) go to support our ANS Conservation Program! Registrants will receive a link to the recording within two days of the talk; it will later be made available on this page to the public.

In an effort to bring more functionality to registering for conservation events, we are experimenting this Spring with using our adult program registration system. Please note your log-in credentials from Action Network will not work in the new system. Unless you have already signed up for a previous class such as a Naturalist Hour or a field trip, you will have to create a new account. We appreciate your patience! If you have any questions please email pam.oves@anshome.org.
