Sharing the Great Lakes Story

Wisconsin Sea Grant staff added their own words to “The Great Lakes Story,” a nationally touring exhibit that recently stopped off at Green Bay’s Neville Public Museum.

Water quality specialist Vicky Harris helped organize a weekly public lecture series to coincide with the exhibit. Sea Grant speakers included Phil Moy, who discussed the threats posed by aquatic invasive species to the Great Lakes, and John Karl, who evoked the great age of sailing ships on Lake Michigan in stories and photographs. Harris presented a sneak preview of the updated State of the Bay, which she described as “an ecosystem health check-up” of Green Bay. Her presentation can be viewed at
