UW-Green Bay to host annual student watershed symposium
Annette Pelegrin shares word that the 11th Annual Student Watershed Symposium — part of the Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program — will take place on campus next Tuesday, April 8. More than 90 teachers and students from 11 area high schools will participate in the daylong event. The symposium allows students to share their findings about improving stream health with professional researchers in water quality fields. Highlights include student presentations and poster sessions in the morning, and an afternoon tour of the UW-Green Bay campus, the Richter Museum, and a special campus field trip “Birding with Bob” featuring our own nationally renowned ornithology professor Robert Howe. The keynote speaker is UW-Green Bay alumnus Dan Cibulka, an aquatic ecologist with environmental management firm Enterra, LLC. The Watershed Symposium is free and open to the public.
