Slideshow: Niedzwiedz, native garden, De Pere park
In another nice example of UW-Green Bay faculty, staff, alumni and community collaboration this summer, Prof. Emeritus Bill Niedzwiedz worked with high school student George Lepak on his Boy Scout service project for the rank of Eagle Scout and helped beautify a local community destination. The 5,000 square foot native plant garden is located at Voyageur Park in De Pere (adjacent to the Fox River Trail) and behind the Kress Family Library. Niedzwiedz, using his expertise in the fields of environmental planning and conservation design, assisted Lepak in putting the project together. Great photo gallery.
