What is an Artemis Community?

An Artemis Community is a local community of sportswomen who come together to build relationships between hunters and anglers, support each other in the field and on the water, and learn more about conservation issues impacting our public lands, waters, and wildlife. Each community is led by a volunteer Artemis Ambassador. Ambassadors are chosen via process of application to be a part of a cohort of 30 sportswomen coming together from communities across the country.
