FOR THE FUTURE. Pollinators, like the painted lady butterfly in the featured photo help with the natural process of plant reproduction, building stronger farms, more robust habitat, and a better environment. We talk about that and more in today’s Three Things.

PRAISE POLLINATORS! From the food you eat to the birds you hunt, a lot depends on pollinators doing their work in the wild. The US Fish & Wildlife Service caps off Pollinator week with an in-depth information page with teachings on the various species that help pollinate and how dependent we are on bees, butterflies, birds and other pollinators.
OUT OF DROUGHT? With good rains still continuing to soak the state, there was an evident improvement in the Drought Monitor this week, with only two percent of the state in severe status (level 2).
WATER EVERYWHERE. High water on the Missouri River in North Dakota has resulted in caution warnings from the NDG&F and continued high outputs from Garrison Dam will continue for the near future. Fast current requires heightened awareness while boating and makes life jackets a necessity.
