The Technical Committee is charged with addressing issues relating to land conservation technical activities including, but not limited to: conservation planning, inventory and evaluation tools, technical certification, and conservation practice and design implementation. They may also serve to coordinate county review of draft guidance or technical standards by other agencies and organizations.
Fall Technical Tour
The Technical Committee hosts an educational tour that highlights various conservation practices or issues around the state. Unfortunately, the 2021 tour in Bayfield County was postponed due to the pandemic; stay tuned for rescheduling information. Click here to view photos from our last tour in Vernon County.
