We typically host two fundraising events per year. The first is Ride to Farm, a 100k bike ride with rest stops at local farms. The other is the Partners for Progress Barn Dance and Chautauqua, which celebrates Wisconsin’s working lands and raises funds for us as well as the important work of other non-profit organizations. Learn more about these events at the Ride to Farm website or the Partners for Progress Barn Dance and Chautauque webpage.
