New York -May 20, 2014- The National Audubon Society celebrated the legacy of female leadership in conservation yesterday, by presenting three conservation champions with the Rachel Carson Award at The Plaza Hotel in New York, NY. The prestigious Audubon award recognizes visionary women whose dedication, talent, and energy have advanced environmental and conservation positive change locally and on a global scale.

“Audubon New York was proud to be honor Ellen Futter, Kaiulani Lee, and Nell Newman as the 2014 Rachel Carson Award recipients,” says Audubon New York Executive Director Erin Crotty.  “They are recognized both globally and locally for dedicating their talents and enthusiasm in support of advancing environmental and conservation issues, making them well-deserving of this award.  As pioneers who are effecting positive change and ushering in innovative conservation ideas they represent the true spirit of the Rachel Carson Award and we are fortunate for their leadership.”

This year The National Audubon Society also recognized a special group of women with the “Women Greening Food” special recognition. This recognition celebrates the efforts of American women whose work has advanced sustainability in food production.  The Audubon’s Women Greening Food recognition recipients included chef Alex Guarnaschelli, Mary Cleaver (founder of The Green Table), Kristen Beddard (The Kale Project), Jilly Stephens (Executive Director of City Harvest) among others.
