Chapter Activities

The DC Chapter serves as an invaluable networking venue, bringing practitioners from the huge range of conservation organizations, governmental entities, and academic institutions found in the greater DC area together for discussion groups, regularly scheduled meetings, speaker events, and that honored and time-tested DC networking tradition: the DC Happy Hour.  Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions or ideas for events.
