The Door County Environmental Council is hosting J. Val Klump, J.D., Ph.D. – a foremost Great Lakes limnologist and biogeochemist – on Aug. 16, 7 pm, for “The Future of the Bay of Green Bay.”
Klump will speak about the state of the water quality in the bay of Green Bay, its current challenges and what the future holds. His recent research explores the presence and dynamics of “dead zones” – places where the oxygen level is too low to support most aquatic life – in Green Bay waters, including the impact of climate change on their extent and duration.
Klump joined UW-Milwaukee’s Great Lakes research program in 1980 and is a professor emeritus and former dean of UW-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences.
The free presentation will take place at the Kress Pavilion, 7845 Church St. in Egg Harbor, and will also be available via Zoom at dcec-wi.org.
