Videos by our LFRWMP Students from
Pulaski High School-- Green Bay and Fox River "Area of Concern" Water
and Habitat Impairments
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.
Teams of students perform a variety of monitoring activities in
selected watersheds of the Lower Fox River Basin, using trained
teachers and standardized methods to collect quality assured data.
These data are shared on the project
website and at the annual Student Watershed Symposium, held at
UW-Green Bay each spring. Here’s what those involved have to say about
The Lower Fox River Watershed by
Pulaski High School
This video was scripted, filmed, and produced by Stefanie
Stainton's AP Environmental Science Class, with directing and
editing by Independent Study students, Dan Irwin and Nick Reed.
The video provides an overview of the L. Fox River Watershed,
current issues and challenges facing the river and Bay of Green Bay,
along with some suggested actions that citizens can take to support
clean water resources in Northeast Wisconsin. Pulaski High
School is part of the Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program
and partners with Oneida Nation High School to monitor Trout Creek.
The video made its debut at the LFRWMP Watershed Symposium and EMBI
Conference at UW-Green Bay on April 19, 2012.
Annual EMBI conference has attendees thinking green
The UW-Green Bay campus was thinking green late last month, when our
own Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI) held its
annual Green Innovations Conference on the topic of water. We’ve got
new video that talks about the event, along with the bigger picture of
EMBI and its sustainability efforts here on campus — how far we’ve
come, and where we’re going into the future.
