Michigan DNR reminds public that fish kills can be common in the spring

After ice and snow cover melt on Michigan lakes this spring, it may be more likely for people to discover dead fish or other aquatic animals.

DNR and Iowa State University partnering with national nonprofit in effort to conserve Iowa’s pollinators

A new statewide project is looking for Iowa volunteers to help researchers track and monitor the state’s at-risk bumble bees.
The Iowa Bumble Bee Atlas is a collaboration between the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, Iowa State University, and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources that aims to understand native bumble bee distributions and their habitat needs throughout the state. Iowa is home to at least 14 species of bumble bees that play an essential role in sustaining the health of the environment, from pollinating native wildflowers to flowering crops in farm fields and backyard gardens.
