FUNCTIONAL FRIDAY.  We’ve got all the great information to keep your gears greased and cranking through today’s rain, from good initial fisheries survey reports for young-of-the-year fish, money for duck conservation and some fun runs on the horizon in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

SPAWN SUCCESS.  The NDG&F Dept. details its fall reproduction surveys to see how well each season’s recruitment of new fish went this spring and summer.  Check out the in-depth video on gamefish and prey fish and learn more about what’s coming up in our fisheries from the agency’s weekly installment of Outdoors Online.

 

BIRD BUCKS.  The Migratory Bird Conservation Commission approved the funding of a number of projects, totaling more than $28 Million for wetland and bird habitat conservation through the NAWCA program.  Now in its thirtieth year, the NAWCA funds will help preserve and restore more than 150,000 acres in the coming months.

 

RACE RUNNER.  You know we like to sneak some outdoor exercise in, and September is a great month for runs, with races big and small across the state of North Dakota.  From the Bismarck and Grand Forks Marathon on down to local 5K runs, a variety of options from east to west are open to those looking for some cool-season sprints, via Running in the USA.
