We've moved! Welcome to our new location...

The magazine Website is now part of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' official dnr.wi.gov Website. You can still find the interesting news, articles and features we've always produced, but the new address means we will be able to offer better search features, audio and video clips, as well and other ways to interact with you in the future. While you enjoy the site, please be mindful that you may need to update old "bookmarks" and Web addresses you've referred to in the past.

Best regards,
the magazine staff.
