Public asked to help perform surveys to monitor prevalence of Iowa’s bats

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources and Iowa State University are looking for volunteers interested in performing night time surveys for bats in Dubuque, Marshall/Tama/Poweshiek/Jasper, Pocahontas, Franklin/Hardin and Butler counties.
The survey monitors bat occurrence in key areas of the state. It began in response to declining bat populations from White Nose Syndrome and other challenges. This survey uses acoustic recording equipment mounted on top of a car to detect bats along specific routes.

Gadget-free fishing and pulling in northern pike

I have several friends who are diehard fishermen, knowledgeable to the point where catching fish is usually an inevitability for them.
