UW-Stevens Point sustainability proposal recognized
in national contest
Two units within the College of Natural Resources at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point have been nationally recognized for sustainability initiatives and a proposal to use compost made of paper mill and vegetable by-products to improve soil and crops within the Central Sands agricultural region.
The Wisconsin Institute for Sustainable Technology (WIST) and Soil and Waste Resources Discipline received one of four $10,000 Honorable Mention Awards in the 2017 Rathmann Challenge, which recognizes sustainable solutions through the Rathmann Family Foundation and Innovation Center in Arnold, Md. (www.rathmanninnovation.org). The two units will split the award to support their programs.
