The National Wildlife Federation is proud to announce the third Women in Conservation Leadership (WCL) Summit which will take place on March 16-19, 2020 on ancestral Apache, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Shoshone and Ute Tribal Nation lands at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Women in Conservation Leadership is a diverse, inclusive, national community and a catalyst to elevate and embolden all women in advancing conservation. We believe in building stronger conservation through empowered women of all ethnicities, races and cultures and the 2020 WCL Summit is an opportunity to put these ideas into practice.
This year’s theme is Weaving Change: Connecting Women for Action. Started four years ago by a group of dedicated individuals, WCL has grown to be a dynamic network and community of diverse women who are committed to leading change in conservation. We see the WCL network like a tapestry – made of individual threads. Each thread is unique and intrinsically important. When woven together the threads create a larger tapestry, providing durability, utility and beauty. Through the Summit, we continue to connect women and weave a larger network for change and impact.

The 2020 WCL Summit will include trainings, hands on skill building, networking and resources for all women in conservation – from students to those who have been doing this work for decades, and everyone in between.
Registration is now open! The general registration fee is $375 attendees and $150 for employees from smaller organizations or individuals who cannot afford to cover the regular fee. Current students are also eligible for the lower fee of $150.
