Heirloom Vegetable Plant Sale was a huge success

Heirloom Vegetable Plant sale held on Saturday, May 11, 2019 was a major success. Hosted by Natural and Applied Sciences, this sale boasted unique and rare heirloom vegetables, herbs and flowers.

UW-Green Bay helps scouts with water badge

UW-Green Bay, in collaboration with NEW Water, helped more than 75 girl scouts earn their water badges in highly-interactive activities on Saturday, Nov. 6. The event was called “Wonders of Water” Badge Day. Most activities took place between 12:15 p.m. and 3 p.m. in UWGB’s Laboratory Sciences building and the Mauthe Center. UW-Green Bay Profs. Patricia Terry and Ryan Holzem led the effort for UWGB. The girl scouts rotated to unique stations that included the study of hydroponics, nitrogen testing, water treatment, aquaponics and more. See the photos from the fun day.

Save the date: Heirloom Plant Sale is May 18

It must be spring — it MUST — if we’re talking about the annual Natural and Applied Sciences Heirloom Plant Sale. This year’s event — the 17th annual — will take place Saturday, May 18 (yup, that’s Commencement Day) in the Lab Sciences Greenhouse. We’ll have more details soon on this terrific tradition. In the meantime, mark those calendars and prepare those palates — a dizzying array of peppers, tomatoes and other veggies (along with plenty of  unusual herbs and flowers) await!

Timetable for construction work in LS/ES/IS area

Already broadcast to all employees but repeated here for the record and the benefit of our off-campus readers: Facilities Management reports that, affecting the Laboratory Science sidewalks and Instructional Services Court, they will be finishing the utility tunnel project by excavating the tunnel and waterproofing the exterior walls. This requires closing the entire sidewalk along the east side (Kress Center side) of Laboratory Science and Environmental Science buildings for the months of June and July. Emergency egress points will still remain open during this time. They will also need to close Instructional Services Court to all vehicular traffic from May 21-25, and pedestrian traffic on one sidewalk that leads to the west entrance of the Laboratory Sciences Building from May 15 to June 8.
