Wisconsin DNR’s Adam Payne gets his senate review

The Wisconsin Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Energy held its first meeting in taking up the possible confirmation of Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Secretary-Designee Adam Payne.
Payne can serve as DNR secretary designee until the full senate votes. Payne emphasized the importance of taking care of the land, and how his past work helps to prepare him for this job.

Rainbow trout: A welcomed invasive to Pennsylvania

I was surprised to read an article recently that characterized the rainbow trout as an invasive species throughout much of the world. In my youth, local stocked streams received lots of both brook and rainbow trout.

Growing popularity of Archery in the Schools events takes commitment from many

“We started with seven kids and one bow,” remembered Jim Moyer. “Our target was a cardboard box on a hillside behind the school.”
Moyer, the coach for the New Lexington Archery team in Ohio, smiled as he recalled the humble beginnings of the school’s archery program.
On Feb. 18, New Lexington Middle School hosted a fun shoot that saw 280 young archers from across 12 school districts, one church, and a group of homeschooled students do their best from 10 and 15 meters.
