ECO Girls engages girls in a wide range of eco-cultural activities that expand their experiences and modes of thought, provide a context for positive friendship building, inspire environmentally-conscious and community-minded action, and prepare girls for future leadership in the development of healthy, ethical, sustainable, and resilient human cultures on our earth.
“If a child is to keep alive [her] inborn sense of wonder, [she] needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with [her] the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.”

—Rachel Carson, ecologist and author of Silent Spring
“We are sisters of this Earth—members of one powerful tribe.”

—Jada Pinkett Smith

Dear Reader,

After three years and many wonderful hours of teaching, learning and mentoring about the natural world, the ECO Girls project is going into a period of hibernation. The faculty founder and director is going on academic leave to study environmental history with the support of the Mellon Foundation. To read the story of how ECO Girls began and developed, click here.

The ECO Girls Facebook page and Twitter feed will remain live, so we will see you online! Thank you to all of the girls and families who participated in ECO Girls over the years.

Fondly,
The ECO Girls Staff
