MADISON - Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine staff are literally leaping for joy over the April issue's frog-filled cover, which teases the new Wisconsin Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin field trip offerings, and pays tribute to 35 years of monitoring frogs and toads in Wisconsin.

Another anniversary is celebrated in "Connecting people to the wonder of Wisconsin," relaying the important work of the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin over 30 years of partnering with DNR.

If those stories don't get you jazzed for spring, read on to learn about "The Great Wisconsin Birdathon," connect to internationally important Wisconsin wetlands in "Ecological treasures," and follow the nearly fatal battle between sandhill crane chick siblings in "Chick fight."

Teaching youth about conservation -- and learning something from them in the process -- are the subjects of "Drawing the future of conservation," "Teach a girl to hunt" and "iPhone, iPad, I Surrender."

Discover the rare species you might find at the Red Bands Alvar State Natural in "Sparse and special," and then follow a bicyclist on his adventures in northern Wisconsin in "Wisconsin Traveler." The "Back in the day" column pokes some fun at a former pathologist for the U.S. Forest Service, who thought trailer camping posed a serious threat to national parks and forests and called for it to be stopped.

This issue contains the popular annual insert, the Wisconsin Fishing Forecast, to get readers ready to cast a line, put some fish in the pan and leave the winter behind.

The magazine also publishes an e-newsletter "Previews and Reviews" to keep its readers informed about upcoming stories and past articles.
