About the Event

Please join us for an informal gathering of conservation educators to meet and learn from others working with women landowners!

All conservation professionals who work with women landowners in various ways are enthusiastically invited -- whether you work for a state agency, non-profit or are an educator volunteer -- we'd love to meet and connect!

Did you know that Governor Evers has declared July 7-13 Wisconsin Women in Conservation Week?

You are a BIG DEAL, and women landowners and farmers are also a big deal when it comes to stewarding Wisconsin’s soil, protecting water, and preserving wildlife habitat.

Feel free to invite other conservation colleagues who work with women landowners. Both men and women are invited to this event!

WiWiC Hosts: Sara George and Alanna Koshollek with Renewing the Countryside

Speakers/Welcoming Remarks: Jamie Kraklow, USDA-NRCS Resource Conservationist and Julie Bomar, WI Farmers Union 

Food & Drink:  We will get you started with an appitizer tray featuring delicious cheese from Wisconsin and Minnesota women cheesemakers! Drinks and food will be available to purchase off the menu.  They feature 6 craft beers on tap and over 150+ beers, ciders, non-alcoholic and gluten-free drinks.  Their menu also includes Giant Jones beer, a women-owned brewery in Madison which focuses on sourcing local organic ingredients.

About Wisconsin Women in Conservation

Wisconsin Women in Conservation (WiWiC) is a state-wide collaborative effort led by the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute in partnership with Wisconsin Farmers Union, Renewing the Countryside and Marbleseed (formerly MOSES).  A five-year multi-faceted project funded by the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), WiWiC brings together Wisconsin's women landowners, farmers, farm workers, urban growers, and conservation professionals to connect and share about conservation practices, resources, and funding opportunities.
