Wisconsin- The DNR is looking to track bear dens this winter. The DNR is currently working on a study on black bear reproduction in the state. This is the third year of data collection for the project. The public is encouraged to report as much information about an occupied den as possible without approaching or disturbing it. Helpful information includes the coordinates and photos of the den as well as a description of the area and any details of the bears. The study plans to continue for the next six to seven years.

Cloquet, MN- Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is hosting several events to celebrate GIS Day on Wednesday, November 15.
