WCSU’s Jane Goodall Center Receives Environmental Award
By Tribuna Staff
Western Connecticut State University’s Jane Goodall Center for Excellence in Environmental Studies was named a 2016 Environmental Champion by Aquarion Water at an awards ceremony at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo in early June. The public water supply company selected winners from entrants whose volunteer efforts have protected or improved Connecticut’s natural resources: air, water, soil, or plant and wildlife communities. Winners were determined in five categories: Adult, Youth, Small Business, Large Business and Nonprofit Organization. The Jane Goodall Center took the top prize in the Nonprofit category. Sen. Richard Blumenthal presented the award.
