WiWiC To Host Launch Parties For Release Of New Book

Wisconsin Women in Conservation (WiWiC) has released a new book called “Portraits of Love on the Land.” The book features in-field portraits and stories of 30 women land stewards in various sectors of agriculture and land management. The book, which will only be available at WiWiC events, is being introduced at a series of happy hour celebrations across the state October 5-11. Copies of the book are free to attendees. 

The events will also serve as a wrap-up celebration of WiWiC’s educational programing in 2023 – which reached over 2,500 women landowners, farmers, and conservationists at over 40 events. All who are interested in conservation are welcome to attend, both men and women, to hear about the accomplishments from this year and get a preview of 2024 programming. 

“The launch parties are a celebration of the book, but really the book is a celebration of the amazing women WiWiC has been privileged to work with for the past three years,” said Kriss Marion, WiWiC Communications and Marketing Lead, who is the author of the book. The book was designed by Brett Olson, Creative Director at Renewing the Countryside, one of the project partners. “We’ve been calling it our “Look Book” because the portraits of the women are front-and-center and represent all the joy we had getting to know them and the landscapes they work so hard to protect. Each story is unique and inspirational.”
