Rural Wisconsin: Building from the Past, Poised for the Future

Wisconsin has a rich history of agriculture, manufacturing, and community building. It is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes and charming small towns in the country. However, as the world changes, so must we. That's why we are bringing together a group of experts and enthusiasts to discuss the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for Rural Wisconsin.

At the 2024 Annual Rural Summit, you will have the chance to learn about the latest developments in sustainable agriculture, rural livability, and community development. You will also have the opportunity to connect with individuals and organizations who share your passion for Rural Wisconsin.

Despite limited resources and infrastructure, come find out how Ashland and surrounding communities has found creative ways to adapt and thrive in the face of changing times.

We’re delighted to announce that the 2024 Wisconsin Rural Partners (WPR) Summit will be hosted in Ashland at the AmericInn by Wyndham on Tuesday, May 14 and Wednesday, May 15, 2024.
