Reminder: Caretaker Award Ceremony and 50th Anniversary Celebration

UW-Green Bay’s Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI) will award the 7th Annual Earth Caretaker Award to 1978 UW-Green Bay graduate Neil Diboll at an on-campus ceremony tomorrow (Thursday, April 21).  Diboll has worked for the U.S. Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, and the University of Wisconsin. In 1982, he began his involvement with Prairie Nursery, producing native plants and seeds and designing native landscapes. The Earth Caretaker Award honors UW-Green Bay graduates who have distinguished themselves in their professional field and are widely recognized for their career accomplishments in the areas of sustainability, environmental management, environmental policy, or other closely related areas. Following the ceremony there will be a 50th Anniversary celebration honoring founding faculty members from the sciences, as part of the University’s continuing yearlong anniversary celebration.  More here.
