We offer workshops, training opportunities, and other services to all land trust practioners in Wisconsin. Currently planned learning opportunities are listed below.  Questions, feedback, and suggestions are most welcome and can be directed to Mike Strigel, Executive Director.

Annual Land Trust Retreat

Each year we invite board and staff of our Wisconsin Land Trust members to our annual Land Trust Retreat. It’s an unparalleled opportunity for learning, networking, and fun among peers and experts from around the state.

At the 2014 Retreat in Green Lake 25 of Wisconsin's land trusts, plus partners, were represented.  Access presentation materials and related resources, and  check out photos, winning entries from this year's haiku contest, and the winning recipe from the dessert potluck competition!

Information about the 2015 Retreat is coming soon.

Virtual Training Opportunities

Gathering Waters, along with the Land Trust Alliance and Heart of the Lakes Center for Land Conservation Policy, are pleased to continue our series of free Ask-An-Expert calls that are easy to fit into your busy day. Upcoming calls for 2015 will be posted soon.
