BRUNO AND SCRIBNER, NEBRASKA –  Women landowners are invited to a farm tour to learn more about conservation and working with tenants, and to meet with other women landowners.

“Women's Learning Circles: Farming with Conservation in Mind,” hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs, will be Tuesday, May 31, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at farms outside of Bruno and Scribner. Addresses will be provided upon registration. In the event of rain, tours will be rescheduled for June 1.

“These tours will let participants connect with and learn from other women landowners in the area,” said Kirstin Bailey, senior project associate for the Center. “Our two hosts have been participating in a University of Nebraska-Lincoln teaching/research project regarding collaborative conservation efforts with their tenants. These women will share their stories and experiences.”

Lunch will be provided; please bring your own lawn chair.

Registration is required by May 26. Sign up at cfra.org/events. For more information, contact Bailey at kirstinb@cfra.org or 402.870.2390.
