A Connecticut woman is being honored by the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Friends of the Norwalk River Valley Trail founding member Patricia Sesto has received the Connecticut Greenways Council Volunteer Award. Sesto serves as President of the Board of Directors for the trails group, which has a goal of building, beautifying and maintaining a 30-mile, 10-foot wide multi use trail. It stretches from Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, passing through Wilton, Ridgefield and Redding, and terminating at Rogers Park in Danbury. Greenways in Connecticut cover thousands of acres throughout every county and often recognize the importance of river corridors for natural resource protection, recreational opportunities, and scenic values.
