The bay of Green Bay is the world’s largest freshwater estuary and one of the most productive systems in the Great Lakes. However, Green Bay and its watersheds have a long history of intensive use and modification, including loss of wetland habitat. Recent efforts have emerged to actively restore aquatic vegetation to improve coastal wetland habitat within Green Bay. Jade Arneson, a recent UW-Green Bay graduate, will share her Masters thesis work evaluating the restoration potential of wild rice, a native annual grass once historically abundant within Green Bay and its tributaries. Sponsored by Next Era Point Beach Nuclear Plant.
