Chancellor Gary Miller and his wife Georgia picked a perfect picturesque day to tour the OAK (Outdoors Adventures for Kids) Learning Center at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary, Monday, December 8. The snowy afternoon provided a beautiful setting for a tour and exploration of the rich resources of the Sanctuary, observation of the nature-based 4K Green Bay Area Public School program, and discussion of potential future partnerships with UW-Green Bay. The University has a variety of projects currently underway with the Wildlife Sanctuary across multiple academic disciplines, and is working to expand grants and future relationships with this community partner.
The visit was hosted by Sanctuary Director Mike Reed and his wife Gail Garrity-Reed. The Millers were accompanied by faculty members Scott Ashmann (Education) and Amanda Nelson (Human Biology), OAK board member and UW-Green Bay trustee Kate Meeuwsen, and members of University Advancement. And of course, the four-year olds provided plenty of entertainment. See a video and feature on this powerful partnership.
