The spotlight was on 12 remarkable women Thursday, June 19, at the State Capitol as Connecticut’s Conservation Partnership recognized them for their work in agriculture and natural resources conservation. This year’s theme was Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment: Stories of the Extraordinary Determination of Women, and the event honored the exceptional and often unrecognized determination and tenacity of women in a non-traditional field.
