"The obligation to endure gives us the right to know."
-- Rachel Carson

The Rachel Carson Award

Audubon's Rachel Carson Award is the nation's premier award honoring women leaders in the environmental world. Presented annually at the Women in Conservation Luncheon each May, it recognizes women whose immense talent, expertise, and energy greatly advance conservation and the environmental movement locally and globally.

Award Criteria

National Audubon and the Rachel Carson Awards Council seek each year to recognize a small group of women who have made outstanding contributions to the conservation and environmental movement. From local grassroots activists to heads of national organizations, we aim to identify and honor women who have shown extraordinary commitment, energy and passion in working to protect and improve our world. Awardees are drawn from diverse backgrounds, including the worlds of journalism, academics, education, science, entertainment, business, law and philanthropy.
