Wisconsin Women in Conservation
December 10, 2020
New Initiative Champions Connections & Collaborative Learning
With a long-standing commitment to conservation and land stewardship, Wisconsin women landowners and farmers share a love for the land that binds them together. There are stories of women who have adopted conservation and could serve as beacons of guidance and there are other stories of women looking for information and connections to nurture their land for generations to come.
To amplify and expand conservation opportunities amongst Wisconsin women landowners and farmers, a new project “Wisconsin Women in Conservation”(WWIC), is launching this year!
Wisconsin Women in Conservation (WWIC) is a unique three-year initiative supported by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and led by the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute in partnership with the Wisconsin Farmers Union, Renewing the Countryside, and the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES).
If you are a Wisconsin woman committed to conservation and curious to learn more from other women in the state, this project is for YOU! WWIC will bring women together throughout the state, both in the farming and professional space, and will host field days in six tri-county clusters, comprising eighteen target counties.
The Michael Fields Agricultural Institute is coordinating workshops in the southeast region of the state, in Milwaukee, Racine, and Walworth County.
The virtual workshops for the WWIC project will kick-off in March and April.
