MADISON, WISCONSIN ~~~~~~ June 9, 2021 (LSN) Celebrate summer and Wisconsin’s pollinators in the upcoming issue of Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine available now.
The Summer issue explores how the sound of a single bee, identified by a field ecologist, led to an exciting discovery late last summer in Milwaukee County: a nest of the rare rusty patched bumblebee.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) was alerted of the find, setting off a buzz of research activity that conservation experts hope will aid efforts for the continued support of this federally endangered species.
Read all about the rare rusty patched bumblebee and learn ways to help this special bee and other pollinators.
Additional stories featured in the Summer issue include:
Plus, learn from DNR Secretary Preston D. Cole about how the agency is working to protect the planet and the people of Wisconsin by the simple act of planting trees.
“Forests are woven into the culture of Wisconsin — where 17 million acres of forestland cover nearly half the state,” said Cole. From providing jobs and recreational opportunities to safeguarding water resources and mitigating climate change, forests “are vital to our social, ecological and economic well-being.”
