‘Spawning Run’ to raise funds, awareness of fisheries conservation

The UW-Green Bay student chapter of the American Fisheries Society is hosting its first ever UWGB Spawning Run at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 17. (Great name!) The run will take place on the paths of the Cofrin Arboretum, 3.1 miles. All proceeds from the run benefit American Fisheries Society student research and local habitat restoration projects. Participants will receive a t-shirt with registration and have a chance to participate in a raffle. Awards will be given to the top three finishers. The cost to register is $20 before Oct. 3 and $25 after. Members of the American Fisheries Society as well as UW-Green Bay alumni, students and staff receive a $5 discount. The Spawning Run is being held in conjunction with the third annual Alumni Days on Oct.16 and 17 on the UW-Green Bay campus.
