COOL CONTINUED. Chilly temps will hang around for a bit longer as we move into the middle of the week. In the meantime, check out the work done by rural mail carriers and one of the nation’s premier research centers into wildlife, plants and more, right here in North Dakota as part of our Outdoors Update.

SPECIAL DELIVERY. In this week’s North Dakota Outdoors web short, the NDG&F focuses on the volunteer services provided by rural mail carriers in the surveying of game and furbearer species on the landscape.
STARRING ROLE. The USGS Northern Prairie Research Center near Jamestown, ND is one of the nation’s leading facilities for surveying, compiling and disseminating information regarding wildlife. Focused on the surrounding prairie environs, the center provides information on flora and fauna of the northern plains for research and understanding in management practices by other agencies and the private sector.
STRUGGLING. While we work our way through an unsettled week (with temps 10-15 degrees below normal), hope is on the horizon for a warm-up. Temperatures for next week show a shot at 80 degrees, and upper 60s and low 70s likely as we reach the middle of the month.
