This journal continues the UW-Green Bay tradition of encouraging students, faculty and the greater community to get involved with the living world around them. Toft Point was entrusted to UW-Green Bay—by conservationist Emma Toft in 1968, and it continues as a “living laboratory” and treasured natural area.
