About Us

Our Mission is to recognize outstanding women leaders in the Dakota-wide conservation community, support opportunities in the Dakotas for girls and young women to become further involved in conservation and environmental sciences, and engage women on important issues related to conservation in the Dakotas.

Our Goals:

  • Encourage women within the conservation sector to support each other and grow network circles.
  • Inspire girls and young women to explore environmental careers and activism.
  • Host field workshops and courses concentrated on educating professionals and students alike on natural resources focused topics
  • Positively contribute to and advance environmental work in the Dakota conservation community through education, support, and research.
