About the Event
You're invited to come celebrate three years launching Wisconsin Women in Conservation/WiWiC and get a sneak peek on all the amazing things to come!
At this special one-time event, we will be honoring the incredible work of Wisconsin women throughout the state whose dedication to stewarding their land inspires us all. These stories are showcased in a new WiWiC publication, Wisconsin Women in Conservation: Portraits of Love on the Land, a Look Book showcasing a diverse collection of women's stories and experiences nurturing our soil.
Come celebrate with us and -- bonus! -- receive your own copy of this beautiful Look Book. Supplies limited.
All women farmers, landowners and conservationists from Milwaukee, Racine, Walworth, and surrounding counties are welcome to attend. We especially welcome back women who have attended WiWiC events over the past three years to celebrate all we have accomplished together - but the event is open to all -- whatever your conservation background, from beginners to experts!
Note for this special Look Book Launch party, a warm welcome to men to attend too!

About 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 three-year multi-faceted project funded by the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), WiWiC brings together Wisconsin women landowners to connect and learn about conservation practices, resources, and funding opportunities.
