Rachel's Network 2023 Spring Meeting

Funding Climate Change and Conservation Solutions on Land and Sea
Paicines Ranch, Paicines, CA
March 20-24, 2023

Central California contains the immense beauty and biodiversity of the Pacific Coast and one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world in the Central Valley. However, climate change is putting growing stress on the region in the form of sea level rise, drought, wildfires, and biodiversity loss. Women scientists, funders, and Indigenous leaders are rising to the challenge to protect this special place.

Join Rachel’s Network March 20-24, 2023, at historic Paicines Ranch for a program that examines regenerative climate change solutions on land and at sea and how funders can support these efforts. This all-inclusive program will feature a day trip to the coast in Monterey, optional hands-on ranch activities, and many opportunities to grow and strengthen relationships with fellow funders and advocates.
