New video: Fox River Watershed Symposium, H.S. students, in spotlight

Taking place in conjunction with Green Innovations 2012 is the annual Lower Fox River Watershed Symposium. Area high school students will showcase their work for the benefit of conference attendees and others beginning at 8:30 a.m. Thursday (April 19) in the University Union. Prof. Kevin Fermanich of NAS and staff coordinator Annette Pelegrin will offer an overview and introduction, and the five student teams will present.

Watershed moments — Just in time for Earth Day — and this week’s EMBI symposium — we’ve got new video detailing this innovative partnership. Since 2003, the Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program has provided high school students and teachers with hands-on experience in assessing the health of aquatic ecosystems in Northeastern Wisconsin. The program is supported through 2013 by a $740,000 gift from Arjo Wiggins Appleton Ltd.
