MADISON -- The February/March issue of Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine finds paddlers shaking the dust off their canoes, kayaks and boards and getting out.
A feature, "Going full circle," follows a kayaker as he lives his dream to paddle the waters around Rock Island. "Take a stand" explains the stand up paddling phenomena that is taking Wisconsin by storm. "A streambank clock" ticks along The Mecan River terrain and tells the unique history of the resource. Meet the staff of Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine at Canoecopia March 7-9 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison (visit canoecopia.com).
This issue also launches a new column, "Back in the Day," which highlights historic images from DNR's photo collection and the story behind the photos.
"Growing up on the ice" is a remnant of winter as a young woman recaps lessons learned from ice fishing with her dad.
"Bitten early by the trout bug" finds a longtime Wisconsin trout angle ready for the early trout season and reliving his reasons to smile on the stream in any season.
Thinking about camping? Why not try campground hosting. "Concierges of the campground" explains the role of campground hosts in state parks and the benefits to volunteering.
"To the rescue" gives props to those who helped in loon rescue. "A birds-eye view" takes readers right in eagle nests along with the researchers who scale trees to get up-close.
The "Traveler" column has been expanded with this issue and features March "Museum" Madness around the state and kicks off a recipe feature.
Three inserts to the magazine round out the issue. Learn about the Natural Heritage Conservation program (formerly Endangered Resources), the Conservation Patron License program, and how your Fish and Wildlife Account dollars are spent.
