The Green Bay Conservation Partners hosted its 8th Annual Spring Roundtable on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 virtually on Zoom. Partners shared information about restoration, monitoring, and other conservation efforts from the bay of Green Bay, Lower Fox River watershed, Green Bay’s West Shore, and Door Peninsula.
The morning featured invited speakers with updates on the Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) and the Green Bay Landscape Blueprint, as well as a series of 5-minute lightning talks and virtual student posters. Lightning talk highlights included monitoring levels of contaminants in fish, working with farmers to address climate change in Door County, managing invasive wetland plant communities, and promoting educational opportunities for youth in conservation and restoration. With over 80 people in attendance, the Spring Roundtable provided a great opportunity to learn about projects and research happening in the region, as well as make new connections with others working on conservation throughout northeast Wisconsin.
