About the Event
Women are the superhero allies of pollinators, champions of the role bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects play on our land. With the decline of pollinators due to invasive species, habitat loss and pesticide use, our role is more critical than ever. Come learn about practical ways to build your land into a sanctuary for pollinators such as creating nesting places and planting milkweed. Connect with conservation experts, meet other inspiring Wisconsin women that share your love for the land and pollinators, and learn about NRCS resources to support your conservation goals.
