BASIC AG FOR CONSERVATIONISTS
Join fellow conservation professionals to better understand the basics of agriculture through a multi-component course taught by experienced local, state, and federal conservationists.
The course will feature both online and in-person sessions. The training is intended to provide conservation professionals with the necessary basic farming knowledge to better work alongside agricultural communities to implement conservation practices for improved land management.
Three webinars from last year’s training are posted on the WI Land+Water+Media website - http://wislandwatermedia.org/webinars/ Please watch these three webinars before attending the in-person trainings: Communicating Conservation and the Culture of Agriculture Basics of Conservation Planning Working with Diverse Communities
