This year, the DDCP Collaborative is entering our 8th year as a program and will welcome our 8th cohort of Conservation Scholars, our "Class of 2021." In the meantime, here is a brief update on how we managed to survive and thrive in a year like no other. 

Ashia, Luz, and I finished facilitating the ALC 4 virtual retreat a couple weeks ago. I already miss our amazing, intelligent, kind, goofy cohort. This cohort will be working on 3 projects throughout the next 6 months. Below they will introduce themselves and their projects. If you're excited about participating in a future ALC, keep an eye out on our social media and newsletters!
