About the Event
Please join us for an inaugural and 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 12-18 the first ever 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.
Please bring a lawn chair. Locally-sourced drinks and food available for purchase.
Event will be outside follow current CDC Covid-19 guidelines. Indoor space available if weather inclement.
We’ll be joined by State Conservationist Angela Biggs and Pat Leavenworth, Wisconsin’s first female state conservationist, who served from 1994-2012.
This event is hosted by Wisconsin Women in Conservation (WiWiC), a state-wide collaborative effort led by the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute in partnership with Wisconsin Farmers Union, Renewing the Countryside and the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) with support from the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS).
