2003 Cofrin Student Symposium

January 29, 2003 
1:00-3:00 1965 Room, Student Union

Cofrin Grant recipients Kathy Groves and Nicole Skiba collecting plants at the Point Creek Conservancy Area adjacent to Kingfisher Farm.

Thanks to a generous endowment from the family of Dr. David Cofrin and the late John Cofrin, annual awards are awarded for student research on the Cofrin Arboretum and UW-Green Bay natural areas. Students carry out a field project in collaboration with a UW-Green Bay faculty member and will present results in at our annual research symposium. The grants are competitive and must contribute to improving our understanding of ecology on one or more of the UW Green Bay Natural Areas.
