Anne Thompson hosted the 10th Annual Women in Conservation Luncheon presenting the Rachel Carson Awards at The Plaza Hotel on May 29th, 2013. Speakers included Douglas Brinkley, and Audubon’s President & CEO, David Yarnold. This year’s honorees were given an 18 karat gold medal with a cameo likeness of Rachel Carson, custom-designed for and gifted to the event by Tiffany and Co. Past honorees gathered on stage to receive a silver version of the medal. Additionally, the event was the first ever fully vegetarian Women in Conservation Luncheon and featured a menu of locally sourced food.
