Minnesota Department of Natural Resources field staff, resource managers and the DNR Information Center staff answer many questions every day about natural resources topics. Here is one of them:
Q. Now is the time of year when Minnesota residents can contribute to the DNR’s Nongame Wildlife checkoff fund on their tax forms. What is this money used for and how does it help wildlife?
Q. Do I still need an open burning permit for my brush pile even though it is winter?
Q. Do hibernating bears ever leave their den during winter if the weather gets unusually warm?
Q. How does the DNR decide whether to aerate a lake to prevent winter fish kill?
Q. Can I harvest firewood from state forests to heat my home?
Q. Do Minnesota's catfish go dormant in the winter?
Q. With winter in the air, folks are getting ready to ride their snowmobiles. What training is required to legally operate a snowmobile?
Q. Herds of bison once roamed and grazed the prairie. Can cattle grazing provide similar benefits to Minnesota’s remaining prairie habitat?
Q. Wild turkeys seem to be fairly common in Minnesota. Has this always been the case?
Q. How can I tell when a lake has turned over in the fall, and do most fish go deeper after turnover?
