Dubuque, Iowa | November 28-30, 2016
At this second workshop of Watershed Leaders Network’s pilot year, participants from six watershed groups in five states shared progress they’d made since defining their own next steps for work at home in August 2016.
At the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, peers learned more about each others’ land, crops, agriculture and conservation delivery systems, social realities and challenges. They shared stories, listened for patterns, asked their own important questions, led dialogues to learn from each others’ experiences, listened in new ways, took time for local group work, challenged each other, and defined next wise steps for work at home.
One participant said a few months later: I stood up in front of everyone at that meeting and announced our next step. And now, it’s happened!
