What does community-based conservation, research and collaboration look like in an urban hub known for its politics and influence? What is the role of Christians in conservation? What happens when the gospel takes root in the places and people which make up a city? Those are the questions which brought A Rocha’s Washington DC group together.
In December 2011, a network of Christians in conservation and environmental science professions in the DC metro area came together and shared a vision for a Christian community-based conservation presence in the heart of Washington D.C. Since then the group has arranged monthly meetings and outdoor activities to build community and expand the network. After a year-long discernment process, the group established an advisory council and is now actively pursuing opportunities to establish an “urban field center” within the District of Columbia. The group is excited to see where this vision takes them in the coming year.
