NAS, Watershed Monitoring Program host Friday event

There’s an important gathering of scientists taking place Friday (Oct. 14) on the UW-Green Bay campus. The Natural and Applied Sciences academic unit, along with the Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program, will be hosting the fall 2011 research symposium. Several current and past Environmental Science and Policy grad students will be presenting posters. Students from several classes will attend the oral presentation by Dr. Val Klump, lead investigator on the NOAA-funded joint project on hypoxia dynamics in the bay of Green Bay. Along with classes, organizers expect several dozen individuals from UW-Oshkosh, St. Norbert College, the state DNR, the Natural Conservancy and Brown County to attend. Prof. Kevin Fermanich, NAS, is a campus contact. The symposium runs from roughly 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Kress Events Center on campus.
