Fannye Cook.png

When Fannye Cook was born in Mississippi in 1889, women were not allowed to vote. They couldn't serve on juries. Some states had yet to officially grant women control over their own earnings. In a time when females were often regarded as unsuited to science, business or politics, Cook rewrote the script.

The inquisitive farmer's daughter from Crystal Springs grew up to become a meticulous scientist and a tenacious champion of wildlife conservation in her home state, where unchecked trapping, logging and market hunting were taking a dire toll. She died in 1964.

We are excited to host Cathy Shropshire and Libby Hartfield at the Clinton Community Nature Center on Tuesday, March 30, at 6:30 p.m, where we will learn about Fannye Cook's life and work, as we celebrate Women's History Month and kick off our Spring Lecture Series.

This will be an outdoor, socially distanced event. Bring a chair, bug spray, and a drink or dinner in reusable containers. Members free, $2 suggested donation for non-members.
