Celebrating the role of women in Texas conservation, we are compiling an edited collection of essays composed by and about Texas women conservationists. Essay topics will include but are not limited to historic explorations of Texas women in the field of conservation; trailblazing Texas women in contemporary conservation; BIPOC women in Texas conservation; conservation as a field in Texas academia; inspiring future generations of Texas women conservationists; career potentials for women in the Texas field of conservation; and Texas women conservationists’ personal reflections.

Under the auspices of the Jane Nelson Institute for Women’s Leadership, the Texas Woman’s University Pioneering Women: Leaders and Trailblazers book series is an interdisciplinary project focusing upon the lives and work of trailblazing women in fields such as the arts, sciences, politics, business, education, the military, health sciences, and community service. The book series seeks monographs, edited collections, theoretical analyses, biographies, memoirs, historical studies, contemporary analyses, and illustrated volumes of visual art or photography. Manuscripts need not be scholarly in genre. The Texas Woman’s University book series is a sponsoring institute for Texas A&M Press. Books developed as part of the Texas Woman’s University book series are passed on to Texas A&M Press for peer review.
