About the Event

Join this inaugural convening of Wisconsin conservation educators to collaboratively strengthen outreach and support for women landowners and farmers. 

Hosted by Wisconsin Women in Conservation (WiWiC), this first-of-its-kind gathering will bring together conservation educators from across the state to connect, network and empower women working on the land, fanning the flames of Wisconsin’s conservation ethic among this increasingly powerful demographic.

All  Wisconsin conservation educators, both men and women, who are  interested in learning effective ways of working with women landowners  are welcome, from agency staff to non-profit organizations and educators  in volunteer roles.

Conservationists early in their careers, including students, are warmly encouraged to attend.

Come meet other educators who share your dedication to supporting women landowners learn about:

  • Best  practices in effective conservation education for women, including an  introduction to Learning Circles by pioneering educators Jean Eells and  Rebecca Christoffel
  • Effective communication & hosting strategies for women-focused events
  • Cultivating inclusivity and diversity in women landowner education
  • Fostering leadership to amplify women’s voices in conservation
  • Conservation career mentoring & support
  • Queen Bee Awards: Honoring educators who support women landowners
