The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites people interested in wildlife and outdoor skills to check out the summer program schedule for the Minnesota Outdoor Skills and Stewardship Series.
In a webinar on Wednesday, Aug. 2, David Stein, Conservation Partners Legacy grant program coordinator, will provide an overview of the CPL grant program, share some habitat success stories from recent grant recipients and discuss how to get involved. Through the program, millions of dollars go to nonprofit organizations and government entities to help restore, enhance, and protect Minnesota’s habitats and natural resources. Funding comes from the Outdoor Heritage Fund, which was created after voters approved the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment in 2008.
In a webinar on Wednesday, Aug. 9, Ron Strauss of the Minnesota Kayak Fishing Association will discuss kayak fishing and why so many anglers are drawn to the excitement, cost, storage, and transportation advantages of kayaks. Strauss will talk about equipment, bait, lures, fishing hot spots and species-specific tips to help anglers have success and more fun on the water this fall.
The Minnesota Outdoor Skills and Stewardship Series webinars are free and offered year-round, though registration is required.
