Please join us for an 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 18-24 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 colleagueswho work with women landowners.

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 Marbleseed (formerly 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.
