The environmental movement has been attracting a growing number of culturally diverse individuals in recent years, leaving some to navigate unfamiliar work environments and feel isolated and alone. The Watershed Institute now offers networking opportunities to celebrate and welcome young environmental advocates regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, religion, socioeconomic status, and physical or mental ability. These events are an opportunity to be yourself without judgement and enjoy the beauty of nature.
On June 3 at 6 pm we welcome environmental advocates to join us for Sunset and Birding a networking event designed to give diverse, young adults an opportunity to enjoy cocktails, Dominican food, and conversation on our recently opened fully accessible Hickory Loop boardwalk. Together, we can empower each other to continue the important work of addressing environmental issues while building a strong, diverse, mindful, and lasting support network. Financial aid will be offered. You must be 21 to attend. There will be alcoholic beverages and IDs will be checked. Preregistration is required.
This event is sponsored by Sustainable Jersey and generous individual donors. We also thank our supporting partners who are helping to spread the word about this event while creating other opportunities to build an inclusive environmental community across New Jersey: American Littoral Society, New Jersey Highlands Coalition, New Jersey Conservation Foundation, NJ League of Conservation Voters.
