University partners on nature-based 4K

UW-Green Bay faculty, students and alumni have been central to the launch of OAK Learning Center, the new nature-based 4-year-old kindergarten at Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary. Kids do most of their learning outdoors. Says Lily, age 4, "Now we know that worms can split in half and still survive... We were learning and we didn't even know it." Check out the video.

Ready for
fisheries season

Parked on display in the University driveway on Earth Day was the new University watercraft, the Phoenix RV. (RV is short for "Research Vessel.") It was acquired for Great Lakes research by the newly formed Aquatic Ecology and Fisheries Laboratory under the direction of Assistant Prof. Patrick Forsythe. It's a 25-foot Boston Whaler Guardian (Commercial Package) with an unsinkable fiberglass hull, a center console with fiberglass canopy, and twin 150 HP four stroke Mercury Motors. We'll have full details on the flight of this Phoenix in a future issue.
