Women Caring for the Land Program

Women who own or manage farmland in and around McLean County are invited to participate in a free conservation discussion and field tour at the Lexington Community Center, 207 W Main Street on August 28. The program is called Women Caring for the Land.

Women Caring for the Land offers a peer-to-peer, informal discussion format to allow women landowners to talk about their individual land stewardship goals. The discussion is facilitated by women conservationists who will share resources available such as USDA cost-share programs and other tools. Staff will be present from the sponsoring organizations, as well as USDA-NRCS.

A free lunch will be provided! After the morning women-only discussion, there will be an optional 2-hour tour of conservation practices on the farmland around Lexington. Those participating in the tour should bring sturdy shoes and dress for the weather.

We are grateful for funding provided by a Conservation Innovation Grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Space is limited for this unique opportunity so please RSVP by 5:00 p.m. Saturday, August 23 to Stephanie Musselman at the McLean County SWCD by emailing her at or calling (309) 452-0830, ext. 3. If you need accommodation please notify Stephanie when you RSVP.
