HEADED BACK UP. While things will be post frontal for the end of your beginning of summer, we’ll see improvement throughout the week for time on the water. We take a look at what you can do to prevent the spread of ANS, North Dakota-based studies on waterfowl nesting and grazing, and a view of the week to come in our Outdoors Roundup.

ANS ALERT. The NDG&F Department encourages watercraft users to be aware of aquatic nuisance species this time of year, as boats go from lake-to-lake-to-lake throughout the summer. With the guidelines of clean, drain and dry along with important items to watch for along with the waters that have troublesome invaders in them, you can help prevent the spread of species which out compete native fish and animals.
DRONING. Ducks Unlimited highlights a 2020 study effort to learn more about the effects of grazing on waterfowl and nesting activities with the help of staff and students from the University of North Dakota. Analyzing short-term grazing efforts, they hope to understand ways to better manage upland areas where waterfowl nest and balance that with operation efforts.
UP, DOWN, ALL AROUND. We’ll see some oscillation in outdoor conditions this week as the weather struggles to stabilize. Look for temperatures to be nicest at mid-week and then better by the weekend with swirling winds as things remain a bit off heading into the end of the month and meteorological summer.
