The Women Aquatic Network conducts community engagement to promote the connection between WAN members and D.C.'s marine and aquatic community.
The Community Engagement program provides WAN members and friends with ways to meaningfully give back to the community and next generation of marine and aquatic leaders. We seek to:
- Build connections between marine professionals and the broader DC-MD-VA community through hands-on activities.
- Participate in environmental cleanups and restoration actions to help keep our waterways and oceans healthy and thriving.
- Increase education, outreach, and mentorship for rising youth in the greater District area who have an interest in science, biology, policy, ocean, coastal, and aquatic affairs.
WAN Community Engagement is open to all WAN members and supporters. Annual activities will be decided upon by participants.
Join us and give back to your community! Email: WashingtonWAN@gmail.com if interested or if you have ideas.
