Cofrin Center
For Biodiversity

The Cofrin Center for Biodiversity at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay was established in 1999 to promote education, scientific research, land protection, and community services that contribute to conservation of the western Great Lakes fauna and flora.

The program is part of the College of Science, Engineering, and Technology, providing opportunities for hands-on student learning and research in field biology, ecology, and other fields, including environmental science, water resources, and even art. The Center manages 6 natural areas in northeastern Wisconsin, the Richter Museum of Natural History, Gary A. Fewless Herbarium, and competitive student grants made possible by generous gifts from the families of John A., Austin E., and David A. and Mary Ann Cofrin.

 Come visit us in Mary Ann Cofrin (MAC) Hall, room 212, on the UW-Green Bay campus (see campus map)!
