WFRV, Channel 5 on Wednesday (May 8) carried a cool story on our own Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program. Reporter Heather Sawaski tagged along with a group of West De Pere High School students as they conducted water testing on Ashwaubenon Creek. “Our overall goal here is to just watch and monitor and try to protect our most valuable natural assets, the Fox River and the bay of Green Bay,” program coordinator Annette Pelegrin of UW-Green Bay said of the testing, which checks things such as clarity, PH levels and depth. In its 10th year, the watershed program also recently held its annual symposium on campus. We’ve linked to the Channel 5 story, as well as a photo gallery from that event (and the larger Environmental Management and Business Institute Green Innovations Symposium).
