All too often, a day at the beach becomes a risky activity when advisories are issued because of elevated bacteria levels.
UWM’s Center for Water Policy convened a group of nationally renowned experts from the Great Lakes region.
UWM supplied the Shedd Aquarium with the biological equivalent of 135 million years of Great Lakes ecosystem history in the form of 14 lake sturgeon.
The disappearance of the insect has robbed Lake Michigan’s Green Bay of what UWM biologist Jerry Kaster refers to as a once bustling “walleye factory.”
“Sustainability efforts at UWM are where they are right now because of strong, campuswide engagement,” says UWM Sustainability Chief Kate Nelson.
