The Wisconsin Women Woodland Owners program was created to connect women landowners with each other and with resource professionals. The events that the program provides create a collaborative and inspiring environment, where women landowners share their experiences and seek advice from both their peers and professionals.

Join us to:
– connect with women landowners and resource professionals
– explore local hiking spots to learn about invasive and native plants
– tour nearby woman-owned properties to share knowledge on land management
– learn about conservation easements, prairie and pollinator restoration, and more!
