Women4theLand Learning Circle Planned
The Clark County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is excited to announce plans to host its first Women4theLand Learning Circle! Recent surveys estimate women now own or co-own close to 50% of the farmland in the U.S. Circles are designed to serve those women who are interested in maintaining productive, profitable land, while conserving natural resources.
Learning Circles are women-only, peer-to-peer meetings in which every women’s knowledge and expertise is of value. Female conservationists are available to facilitate discussions and provide information to help the landowners make informed decisions about soil and water conservation, hunting and habitat management, pollinator habitat, forest management, and more. Lunch, and an afternoon field tour of conservation practices, round out the day. There is no cost to participate.
We would appreciate your help in planning our first Circle meeting by filling out our survey by September 14, 2018. We will select the most popular meeting time, and topics from the responses; formal invitations will be sent out as soon as we have those set. We would like to thank you in advance for completing the survey, and hope that we will see you in the “Circle”!
