Upcoming Events:

Conservationists of Color Community 2022 Rally Call (Open to BIPOC CoC members)

March 31, 2022 (4-5pm Eastern, 3-4pm Central, 1-2pm Pacific)

Join us for a community call on Thursday, March 31st, from 4:00-5:00pm (EST) to learn about how you can contribute to changing the face of the conservation movement by joining our steering committee. This is a great opportunity to help CoC be the best it can be, sharpen your skills and develop relationships with like-minded BIPOC professionals. The commitment is manageable and fun!

During this call, we will also discuss Conservationists of Color’s presence at Rally 2022. We encourage you to share topics for programming, ideas for outings, places to visit or if you know a speaker who you think would be great for us to incorporate into CoC events at Rally. The more ideas we can choose from, the stronger CoC’s presence will be. 

Please email us at and we will send you a calendar invite with Zoom info. Can’t make it on the 31st? Send us an email detailing your interest and we will be in touch!
