ICCF Gala History & Past Programs

The U.S. International Conservation Congressional Gala was first hosted on September 19, 2006, bringing together a diverse group of liberals and conservatives, Republicans and Democrats, corporations and NGOs, foreign dignitaries and American celebrities, volunteers and professionals in a common cause to "elevate to new heights the emphasis that the United States of America places on leading the world in habitat and biodiversity conservation and overall good stewardship of natural resources."

Since then the ICCF hosted a series of Galas to further its collaborations and spread the Teddy Roosevelt approach to conservation, the event growing in popularity year after year.
