We are women on a conservation journey. Some of us have already adopted soil health practices and serve as mentors, while others are seeking help to protect land for generations to come. WiWiC is here to connect, empower, educate, and inspire women -- for the sake of the land but also because of the wellness created through stewardship. We are here to nurture our land and ourselves. Sound good? If you are a Wisconsin woman committed to conservation and curious to learn more, join us for on-line learning and in-person farm field days. Conservation is contagious, and addictive, so get ready!
WHO WE ARE
We're women landowners and conservation professionals who share a passion for taking good care of soil, water, and wildlife. We are farmers, biologists, researchers, gardeners, prairie enthusiasts, hunters, fishers, retirees and young women with dreams of land ownership. By sharing stories, knowledge and experience, we're working together for a brighter future.
WHAT WE DO
WiWiC promotes stewardship by women landowners through regional educational workshops, field days, mentorships and summits. Outreach is focused in four geographic areas, as shown on the map, but all welcome to join in. WiWiC supports conservation plan development and implementation, helping women access NRCS programs and connect with local agencies. Workshops are virtual this spring, with in-person events added when possible. The program is funded by the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and other conservation partners.
