On Thursday, October 30th, 2014, the Northeast Environmental Partners awarded their twenty-fourth annual environmental partnership awards, and Women and Their Woods was one of the recipients. The awards pay tribute to those organizations and individuals of Northeastern Pennsylvania that have achieved environmental protection or conservation through partnering with others.
The Conservancy’s Stewardship and Education Coordinator, Amanda Subjin accepted the award and had this to say: “It would be impossible to coordinate this initiative without the numerous dedicated, creative and conscientious women forest landowners with whom I am fortunate to work. Additionally, I am thankful to all of the professionals and partner organizations who have helped to build a strong network of women forest landowners and resources.”
The Northeast Environmental Partners include Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Pennsylvania Environmental Council’s Northeast Office, PPL Corporation, Procter & Gamble Paper Products Company, and Wilkes University.
