How Did We Get Here?

October 9, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


This webinar will provide a light-hearted but historically accurate overview of the evolution of county land conservation programs from the perspective of two “seasoned” County Conservationists, with a focus on nonpoint pollution. Why did Wisconsin abolish Soil & Water Conservation Districts in 1982? Why does that make us unique nationally? What have been key program developments since? Who were the key players? What have been some of our biggest challenges, accomplishments, and setbacks? As we plan to address our current and future program challenges, attendees will gain a better appreciation of our rich history, and the lessons learned along the way. Presenters are Perry Lindquist, Waukesha Co., and Dan Masterpole, Chippewa Co.

Register here by noon on October 8.
