Lend your voice and get to know the leaders of a growing movement working to connect diverse communities to the outdoors, inspiring them to care for and protect our ocean planet.
In honor of Black History Month, join the National Aquarium for an evening centered on diversity in conservation, with experts reflecting on the challenges, trends and progress shaping this movement. Our featured speaker for the event is Dr. Mamie Parker, the first African American Regional Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. A conservation trailblazer, she will reflect on her experiences working toward a more just and fair future that ensures everyone can access the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of nature in Baltimore and beyond.
The evening begins with a complimentary reception featuring community groups on the ground connecting their communities to nature, environmental careers and championing action. Mingle with representatives of these local and regional organizations and discover ways you can get involved.
