There's a football team that plays in Green Bay, but I'm not going to write about them. Instead I'll share some of the other things which Green Bay is associated with - notably, outdoor activity. Green Bay is (surprisingly) a beautiful place to visit, with several distinct and unusual parks and wildlife refuges. Green Bay is an important place for migratory waterfowl flying up and down the North American corridor, and it is heartening to see that efforts have been made to preserve and extend wetlands habitat for a variety of creatures. If we as a society are going to be truly serious about protecting our environment, we need to be concerned not only about "wild places" like Yellowstone or Montana, but also - especially - about less dramatic but no less significant features like the wetlands of the upper Midwest.
Green Bay lies at the point where the Fox River enters into "Green Bay." The Fox River has a high concentration of paper mills, which can never be "neutral" in regards to environmental pollution. Fortunately, however, there's been a recognition that the local area is too important to be wasted, so the region is dotted with a variety of local, regional, and statewide parks and wildlife refuges. Some of these are funded by the paper companies themselves. It may be "conscience money," but even so, they should be commended for making the effort of giving something back to the natural world which they can't help but otherwise degrade.
