NAS professors Howe and Wolf receive grant from EPA, DNR

Natural and Applied Sciences Professor Bob Howe and Associate Professor Amy Wolf are the recipients of a $471,000 Environmental Protection Agency/Department of Natural Resources grant to study fish and wildlife conditions and threats in what’s termed the Lower Fox River and Green Bay Area of Concern and its immediately contributing watershed. Collaborating with The Nature Conservancy, Howe and Wolf will undertake a two-year, two-phase project to comprehensively assess existing habitat conditions and formulate a protection and restoration plan in the affected areas. Phase one, the assessment portion of the project, will address regional habitat needs of priority Area of Concern fish and wildlife populations and watershed-based threats related to non-point pollution (i.e., excessive phosphorous and sediment loading).
