We are excited to announce our new Wisconsin Women Woodland Owner Program!

To celebrate we kicked off the new year with a webinar series geared towards women woodland owners in Northwestern Wisconsin, and presented on the following topics:

  • Accessing and Organizing Woodland Owner Resources
  • Tree Identification
  • Invasive Plant Identification and Control

These casual sessions offer women woodland owners the opportunity learn valuable information about many woodland management topics. Our webinars begin with a 30 minute presentation and end with a 30 minute Q&A session. The Q&A provides ample time to elaborate on important topics and answer questions from landowners. We invite state experts to speak at our webinars and join our Q&A sessions to provide in depth information and additional resources for landowners.

**NOTE – Webinar registration is full at this time. If you are interested in upcoming online learning please go to our event page. If you are interested in staying informed about future women landowner events please scroll down for contact information**

This May we will be gathering for a hike to practice identifying invasive plants, and for two invasive plant workshops near Menomonie, WI*. Scroll down to check out how we keep you safe during our in person events. Check back with us in March if you live near Menomonie and are interested in joining! 

If you have questions or would like to stay up to date on future events please contact Lauren Larsen by email.
