Annual Meeting

2021 Annual Walnut Council Meetings

In lieu of one large national multi-day meeting this summer, Walnut Council is hosting three regional field days in July in Wisconsin, Missouri, and Indiana.

If you are ready to attend a field day, consider registering for one event. Registration will be limited to 60 people per event, so sign up ASAP. We will be following all local and CDC guidelines for safety and have posted a safety guidance document. If you are feeling sick or have COVID-19 symptoms please stay home for everyone’s safety. WC strongly encourages wearing masks and social distancing at our events where conditions would recommend them.

Each event will consist of a Friday evening optional meet and greet (dinner on your own), Saturday morning walking tour, with a box lunch and outdoor sit-down program in the afternoon. There will be plenty of time for networking and question and answers. Each tour is $20 to cover the cost of lunch and supplies.
