Public recognition for the need for more pollinator habitat is rising, but pollinator habitat restoration has been happening for a long time! Explore one of UW-Green Bay’s pollinator plantings and learn about their management journey at different sites over time. We’ll tour the newly created 75-acre Wequiock Creek Natural Area just upstream of estuarine wetlands, which includes newly-installed pollinator plantings.  
Invasive Phragmites gained a strong foothold in Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan basin by the early 2000s and presents an ongoing challenge to coastal wetland restoration in Lower Green Bay. An interagency partnership including Ducks Unlimited, UW-Green Bay, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and US Fish and Wildlife Service collaborates on Phragmites management and wetland restoration efforts at several Green Bay west shore wetlands. We’ll stop at a publicly accessible site, Ken Euers Nature Area, to highlight recent Phragmites management activities, restoration of native wetland vegetation, including Manoomin (wild rice), and involvement of local community members and students in restoration and outreach. Prepare for a short trail walk. Don’t forget your binoculars to spot migrating waterfowl!
