    This a picture of Professors Paul Sager (left) and Jim Wiersma (right) taking water samples on lower Green Bay. They did some of the earliest studies on the condition of lower Green Bay and the lower Fox River. The boat was the first boat UWGreen Bay aquired for aquatic research. It was later stolen from the old barn that stood along highway 54/57. The culprit turned out to be one of our own security staff. The boat was recovered and returned to campus several years after it was stolen. Jim Wiersma
