This week, as part of the college’s effort to support #MaskUpUW, we’re sharing photos that came in from three of the college’s Agricultural Research Stations. Our thanks go out to Becky Eddy at Rhinelander, Troy Fishler at Hancock and Bruce Schweiger at O.J. Noer for providing these great pictures.

Now it’s YOUR turn!

We are asking members of the CALS community to please share images of themselves and/or their colleagues engaged in good public health behaviors, such as wearing face masks and doing proper physical distancing. This CALS effort is part of a broader campus-wide #MaskUpUW campaign.

There are two ways to submit your photos. You can email them to Or if you’d rather share them via Twitter, just be sure to mention @UWMadisonCALS so we don’t miss your tweet.

Submissions will be added to the “CALS supports #MaskUpUW” Flickr album and will be considered for sharing via the eCALS newsletter and through CALS social media accounts. We appreciate your participation and look forward to seeing your #MaskUpUW photos!
