Patricia Amunga, on the left, Rita Woldermichel, on the right, and Brandon Kretlow (not pictured) presented their project at the 2017 Fall Gala about the evaluation of the antioxidant activity, radical scavaging, and xanthine oxidase inhibition of Artemisia vulgaris (mugwort) that has been used in traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean medicine. To fulfill their research, the antioxidant assay was performed, radical scavenging extracts were tested on DPPH, and xanthine oxidase was monitored to see its absorbance for the generation of uric acid.

Kinni River Recreation - Story Map Series

Kinni river-800

Johnathan Van Roekel, Dr. Charles Rader and Dr. Christopher Holtkamp (CAFES)

This ArcGIS Online Story Map Series was a partnership effort between the Kinnickinnic Corridor Collaborative and the KRLT. Through an interactive approach, this map was designed to help facilitate conversation around river use, recreation, and maintenance in the Kinnickinnic Watershed.  It also provides a great resource for residents and visitors alike to search and discover new places to explore the beauty of the region.  I am proud of the result and feel more confident with my skills in ArcGIS Software and online mapping capabilities as well as how to negotiate the varying desires of multiple stakeholder groups.
