About the Event
As women, we naturally care for and nurture those things we value in our lives, including our land. But how can we keep everything on the to-do lists of our lives in balance with our deep commitment to conservation and all the time and energy that takes? Come for ideas and strategies on how to achieve our conservation goals and not burn out in the process.

Conservation Winter Camp Lunch Series
Thanks to the enthusiastic response to our virtual Summer Camp series, we’re continuing during the winter months!
Come take advantage of this cozy, slower time of year to collaboratively dream and develop next steps for stewarding your land.
Join women landowners from across the state who share your passion for conservation and connect with expert advice, resources, and opportunities from our friends at Pheasants Forever around the virtual campfire.
Thanks to FarmWell Wisconsin for sharing mental health resources at the session!
Winter camp bonus: We’ll kick off each session with a recipe for a WiWiC favorite beverage!
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.
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.
