Ongoing Programs

Here at DC EcoWomen, we are only as strong as our members’ involvement. In order to accommodate busy schedules and diverse interests, we offer an array of ongoing programs and special events geared toward bringing eco-minded women together to learn, discuss, network, and have fun. Join us!

Ongoing Programs

Book Club

Our book club meets every month to discuss a book or series of small articles, blogs and podcasts with an environmental angle. Our discussions are cozy, chill, and open-ended. They are always open to new members and there’s no obligation to come to every session. Learn more >>


We like to explore environmental issues through the arts. We often host screenings and discussion of an environment-themed film, usually at a member’s home. We also organize outings to environment-related arts events in the Washington, DC area.

We seek to provide DC EcoWomen members the opportunity to learn more about the environment and sustainability, to examine humanity’s cultural links to nature, and to meet and share ideas with like-minded women. Learn more >>


As women who are passionate about the environment and outdoors, we are working to create a community of people who spend time playing outside together. Past Eco-outings have included hiking, working on urban farms, visiting sustainable wineries, potlucking in parks, and more.

We are always looking for more ideas that will get us outside to learn, appreciate, or enjoy the nature just outside our doorsteps.

Photo Contests

Once per year, DC EcoWomen hosts a photo contest to showcase artistic images taken by our members that highlight women in the environment, conservation in action, natural beauty, travel, and iconic urban landscapes. Learn more >>
