Conservation Training


April 28, 2023

9:30 am – 3:30 pm
Location: Stevens Point, WI

Join this inaugural convening of Wisconsin conservation educators to collaboratively strengthen outreach and support for women landowners and farmers.

Hosted by Wisconsin Women in Conservation (WiWiC), this first-of-its-kind gathering will bring together conservation educators from across the state to connect, network and empower women working on the land, fanning the flames of Wisconsin’s conservation ethic among this increasingly powerful demographic.​

All Wisconsin conservation educators, both men and women, who are interested in learning effective ways of working with women landowners are welcome, from agency staff to non-profit organizations and educators in volunteer roles.

​Conservationists early in their careers, including students, are highly encouraged to attend. WiWiC is committed to making sure anyone who wants to come can come. If a complimentary registration to cover the $25 fee would help make that happen, please contact Esther Shekinah:

The WiWiC Conservation Educator Network launched in 2021 to bring together conservation educators for shared learning and networking, both through state-wide virtual meet-ups and a series of summer happy hours. Based on strong response to these events, the idea of an in-person, centrally-located, day-long conference came together. The beautiful Sentry World venue seemed like a perfect setting to gather.
