MADISON -- The 40th anniversary year of Wisconsin's law safeguarding rare wildlife and plants is winding down with the penultimate feature posted today on the Department of Natural Resources website highlighting successful comebacks and innovative approaches achieved under the law.
The new feature focuses on private landowners teaming up with DNR staff and other partners to restore habitat that will benefit the state's at-risk species. The feature, like the 11 that have preceded it, uses videos, slide shows, and other media to help tell the story and encourage people to get involved.
A listing and direct links to the features are listed below; they can easily be reached from the DNR home page, dnr.wi.gov, by doing a keyword search for "ER 40." Each feature can be reached by clicking on the number on the top right hand part of the screen.
