WiWiC Conservation Educator Network Spring Meet-Up
Time & Location
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 March 8 Spring 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. This March 8 meet-up is one of two annual such gatherings via Zoom, with the second happing in fall, 2022.
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 March 8 Spring Meet-Up (online via Zoom) we will:
- Meet and network with other conservation educators both statewide and in your region
- Learn about trends and resources to help in our work with women landowners.
- 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 March 8 but would still like to be a part of this network and be informed of future events, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, organization/position and contact information.
