Several members of The Morton and Spapperi Family Foundation recently attended Women in Natural Resources Conference at Virginia Tech. The premise of the fall conference was to highlight the role of women in natural resources and to offer tools, resources, and inspiration to succeed professionally and grow personally.

The 2-day event, held on campus, drew over 150 attendees from around the country and from a variety of environmental areas including National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and The Weather Channel.
