The Wilderness Society honors Mama Grizzlies during National Women’s History Month
THE WILD (Wednesday March 2, 2011) The Wilderness Society is redefining what makes a Mama Grizzly during Women’s History Month, which occurs in March. We will be honoring women who work every day, at home or on the job, to protect our shared wild places that are homes to grizzly bears and other wildlife.
Six months is not a long time or is it? Six months in the life of an infant brings some of the most vital stages of development. Six months can be measured by two weather seasons. This length of time can be significant or just create passing memories. For me, the last six months working at the Wilderness Society have been more than enlightening and have changed my vision of the future.
The Wilderness Society helped kick off the two-day long Good Jobs Green Jobs Conference that brought together labor representatives, environmentalists, and others interested in creating a green economy – hosting 2 panels on creating jobs and saving our natural landscapes.
On Feb. 19, the House Majority — on a virtual straight party-line vote — passed an extreme budget bill, or continuing resolution,that if accepted by the Senate, will terminate funding for dozens of critical environmental programs and harm some of the nation’s bedrock conservation laws.
