Wisconsin Women in Conservation is delighted to close out Women's History Month 2022 with the launch of our new podcast: the Queen Bee Sessions. The sessions feature Wisconsin women farmers, landowners and conservationists who are making strides to protect soil, water, and wildlife in our fair state. The sessions are hosted by WiWiC Communications Lead Kriss Marion, who practices managed grazing with sheep and hosts a farm stay at Circle M Market Farm in SW Wisconsin.
We kick off the series with conservation rock star August Ball, founder and CEO of Cream City Conservation and Consulting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin's first black-owned certified B-Corp business.
