This summer, conservation nonprofit Sustainability Matters is partnering with Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services to host EcologiGALs. Supported by seed funding from the Business Women’s Giving Circle, this 8-week summer program will engage high-school aged girls by introducing them to everything a career in the environmental sciences has to offer. The program will consist of weekly hands-on research at our Making Trash Bloom pollinator meadow at the I66-Transfer Station in Fairfax, as well as mentorship from George Mason University’s Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation students and business women at the top of environmental fields. We can’t wait to meet the next generation of conservationists this June!
