Media coverage: UWGB and local efforts to rehabilitate the bay

Despite headlines about a dead zone, phragmites, PCBs and other ailments in the lower bay, local environmentalists found plenty of positives as part of the second annual “Bringing Back the Bay” tour, in which about 80 people got to tour habitat restoration areas along the western shore. Among the sites visited were wetland preservation, northern pike habitat restoration efforts and Cat Island Chain developments that have benefited from UWGB faculty, staff and student involvement. Researchers Patrick Robinson and Tom Prestby were mentioned in a Press-Gazette story.
