Green Bay Aquarium Society Raises Funds for Heckrodt Wetland Reserve

May 22, 2018

Green Bay Aquarium Society (GBAS)—which aims to further the study of all forms of aquatic life, to promote interest, exchange ideas, distribute information concerning the aquarium hobby, and to encourage the breeding and display of aquatic life—has raised $3,000 during its Rummage Sale for a Cause. These funds will support the Pond with a Purpose at Heckrodt Wetland Reserve in Menasha, Wisconsin.

The Pond with a Purpose will be Heckrodt’s revamped aquatics exhibit where native fish such as bass and catfish will be featured in a naturalistic environment. This is an important addition to the Heckrodt’s education programming and visitor enjoyment. This falls into GBAS’s purpose of studying all forms of aquatic life.

“I grew up in Menasha; Heckrodt is where I used to go to enjoy nature when I was coming of age,” GBAS President John Moyles said. “We used to come down here and catch turtles and frogs and play tag in the cattails. It is so important to have resources like Heckrodt in the community, where people can connect with nature and to try to capture that spark in the next generation.”
