Minnesota Women's Woodland Network KAP Study

Initiated by the University of Minnesota Extension in 2008, the Minnesota Women's  Woodland Network (MN WWN) is dedicated to building a community of women woodland owners, their families and land managers to nurture a land ethic. The MNWWN creates supportive, informal, small group learning opportunities on topics that include trees, nature and caring for the land.

Results from a recent study indicated that women landowners contrast some of the prior assumptions about them. The MNWWN provides the opportunity to recognize and enhance the role of women in woodland management, whether they own land themselves, may inherit or purchase land in the future, or who may simply be interested in supporting this effort.

Join us in welcoming them and their new website.
