About the Event

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

You’re invited to the launch of an inclusive new network of conservation educators to collaboratively support each other in our conservation outreach and work:  WiWiC Conservation Educator Network

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.

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).

At this Oct. 28 Kick-Off (online via Zoom) we will:

  • Learn about the unique learning styles for effective conservation education for women
  • Meet and network with other conservation educators both statewide and in your region
  • Identify needs & opportunities for educators working with women landowners
  • Learn about Wisconsin Women in Conservation and ways to plug in

Note: If you cannot attend on 10/28 but would still like to be a part of this network and be informed of future events, please email eshekinah@michaelfields.org with your name, organization/position and contact information.

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 the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (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.
