About the Event
Women Championing Feathered Friends
Women are the superhero allies of birds, as we understand how important our winged friends are in championing a healthy, diverse ecosystem on our land. Come for a session on all things birds, from identifying what’s on your land already to next steps in developing a plan to enhance prairie habitat on your land. Connect with conservation experts, meet other inspiring Wisconsin women that share your love for the land and prairies, and learn about NRCS resources to support your conservation goals.
Expert Speaker: Cindy Becker, Southern Driftless Grassland Conservancy
Woman Landowner Citizen Scientist Share: Joy Miller, Driftless Curiosities
WiWiC Hosts: Sara George & Elena Byrne, Renewing the Countryside
Conservation Summer Camp Lunch Series
Are you a Wisconsin women landowner, farmer or conservation enthusiast ready to discover new ideas and resources to care for your land? BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND for a third year and this season we’re bringing friends: animals! Each session will focus on creating healthy habitat for a different beneficial critter. There will be a content expert sharing resources and how-tos along with an inspiring “citizen scientist,” a woman landowner sharing her personal experience in and love for that species.
This Summer Camp series is an opportunity to join women landowners from across the state who share your passion for stewarding the land and connect with expert advice, resources, and opportunities around the virtual campfire. Whatever your background, from beginners to experts, all women are welcome and we want to hear your story. Feel free to bring your lunch. S’mores optional. Wisconsin Women in Conservation is hosting four sessions, each on one Thursday per month from May through August.
