UW-Green Bay student chapter honored at national Audubon convention

Grad student Jacob Woulf, undergrad Brandon Byrne and UW-Green Bay Senior Research Specialist Erin Giese (Cofrin Center for Biodiversity), were surprised to be recognized at the National Audubon Convention in Milwaukee, for starting the very first Audubon Student Campus Chapter in the country—the Green Bay Audubon Student Conservation Chapter. Only three awards were given during this plenary session with more than 600 in attendance, and UW-Green Bay received one of them. According to Giese, during the plenary session, organizers also showed a photograph of recent graduate student Tara Hohman ’19 (Environmental Science & Policy) to recognize her as being the first Audubon Campus Chapter student hired by Audubon. (She started her job in early July of this year.)
