Building Human Capital in Conservation and Watershed Work
Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 2pm CT – View the Recording

People are the ultimate driver of change. This is no exception when it comes to achieving clean water and conservation goals in the Midwest. Human capital, or an individual’s skills and confidence to perform their job, is a critical ingredient of the power of people. Yet, in watershed management, it is a limiting and often overlooked resource. This edition of The Current Webinar Series discussed new research and programming aiming at building human capital in conservation and watershed work.

Featured Speakers:

  • Clare Lindahl, CEO, Soil and Water Conservation Society: “Results from New Poll offer Boots-on-the-Ground Insight on Improving the Nation’s Conservation Delivery System”
  • Jenny Seifert, Watershed Outreach Specialist, University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension: “Why Human Capital Matters for Clean Water, and How a New Collaborative is Building It”
