WiWiC Conservation Educator Network Meet-Up

About the Event

Are you a conservation educator working with women landowners in Wisconsin? 

A warm invite to join the WiWiC Conservation Educator Network at our Novembef 16 Fall Meet-up.  

The WiWiC Conservation Educator Network is an inclusive network of conservation educators to collaboratively support each other in our conservation outreach and work.

The goal of this network, facilitated by the Wisconsin Women in Conservation (WiWiC), is to regularly connect educators who work with women farmers and landowners, to share best practices and challenges, to develop cooperative strategies for effective programming,  resource sharing, and how to work most effectively together. 

The November meet-up will be extra-special as our two speakers, Heather Burklund and Erin Schneider, are sisters!  While they play different educator roles, they both share a passion for creatively expressing their love for conservation and Wisconsin.

Topics & Speakers for our November 16 Fall Meet-Up  (online via Zoom):

  • Educator Resource Share:  Learn about resources & opportunities for educators from Heather Berklund, Wisconsin Chief State Forester
  • Educator Career Share:  Reflections and advice on building a professional career as a woman working in conservation with Erin Schneider, Poet, Artist and Farmer at Hilltop Community Farm
  • Network:  Meet other conservation educators statewide 
  • WiWiC Update: More ways to connect!

Together, we will amplify support and bring together Wisconsin women farmers and landowners to collectively champion and celebrate land stewardship and conservation practices in our state.  We look forward to your being a part of this unique new initiative.  Anyone who works with Wisconsin women farmers and landowners, from agency and non-profit staff to educator volunteers and both men and women, are welcome to join the WiWiC Conservation Educator Network (free).

Note:  If you cannot attend on November 16  but would still like to be a part of this network and be informed of future events, please email with your name, organization/position and contact information. This fall meet-up is one of two annual such gatherings via Zoom, with the second one happening in spring, 2024.
