2021 Celebrating Women in Conservation Awards

Each year, PennFuture honors the accomplishments of outstanding women conservationists in Pennsylvania. The 2021 Celebrating Women in Conservation Awards are designed to recognize excellence in conservation and to forge a stronger network of women who are deeply committed to working to protect Pennsylvania’s environment.

Since its inception in 2015, this event has traveled around the state to different communities to ensure recognition of local leaders, volunteers, and career professionals. We are pleased to bring the 2021 event to Northeastern Pennsylvania.
