MADISON -- Eagles have landed on the pages of Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine, with a December cover story about "Eagle encounters on the Fox." The story pinpoints prime bald eagle viewing spots in the Fox River Valley and includes information on other places around the state to see eagles in winter.
Also in the magazine, "Tunnel vision" tells of a collaboration aimed at aiding wildlife, especially turtles, by creating an underpass for them to travel near a busy highway in central Wisconsin. The project--involving the Department of Natural Resources, Department of Transportation and UW-Stevens Point--already has shown promise in reducing animal road mortalities and improving motorist safety.
Recollections of deer hunting and what it has meant to a group of brothers are shared in
"Driven by memories." And "Managing for woodland diversity" outlines forestry plans at Brule River State Forest, with strategic cuts designed to foster long-term tree diversity and woodland health.
In the magazine's regular features, "Back in the Day" shares "Recipes and memories"
from a cookbook written by noted Wisconsin author Jerry Apps and his daughter, Susan Apps-Bodilly, based on the well-worn recipe cards of Jerry's mother.
"Keeping it wild: Outdoor food and forays" focuses on venison, with preparation
and cooking tips. "Wisconsin Traveler" provides details on several seasonal activities around the state including outdoor happenings, botanical garden holiday displays and historical site events. And "Wisconsin naturally" looks at Mecan Springs State Natural Area, a geological gem in Waushara County.
In addition, the December magazine includes two bonus features: the annual report of the DNR's Natural Heritage Conservation Program, with highlights of 2017 accomplishments, and the 2018 Friends of Wisconsin State Parks calendar. The latter is a striking tribute to state properties, featuring winning images from the Friends' annual photo contest.
