Another environmental award for alumna Vicky Harris


Vicky Harris, recent recipient of the Earth Caretaker Award at this year’s EMBI conference at UW-Green Bay, has just won another award: the 2012 Jack R. Vallentyne Award for “important and sustained efforts to inform and educate the public and policymakers on Great Lakes issues.” She receives the award this week at the 55th Annual Conference on Great Lakes Research, May 13-17, in Cornwall, Ontario. Harris holds bachelor’s, 1974 and master’s 1998, degrees in environmental sciences from UW-Green Bay. The longtime water quality and habitat restoration specialist with the UW Sea Grant Institute on the UW-Green Bay campus has dedicated her life to clean water. We haven’t yet seen a news release from IAGLR, but we found more on the award.
