About the Event

Pack your camp chair and join us for a summer’s evening in August at the farm of Christine Klessig!

We will take a walk around New Hopestead Farm to see multiple past and present conservation practices in the works including wildlife habitat planting, prescribed grazing, and woodland management.  Christine will also be sharing information about the easement on her property, how that works, and why that has been important for the land. New Hopestead Farm is beautiful and you don't want to miss this evening of conversation, connection, and conservation. 

Dinner will be provided.  

All women farmers, landowners and conservationists from Marathon, Portage, Shawano, and surrounding counties are welcome to attend-- whatever your background, from beginners to experts!
