CONTINUED COOL. Temperatures stall out in the 70s for the weekend before our young summer reverts to a more spring-like feel come next week. We’ve got our eyes on what’s ahead, including a huge win for parks, public places and wildlife with the GAOA passing the Senate and an annual photo contest from the NDG&F along with what to expect on the water this weekend.

A WIN FOR WILDLIFE. The Senate has passed the Great American Outdoors Act, which will fully fund and secure the Land and Water Conservation Fund for five years to the tune of $9.5 Billion, according to the National Wildlife Federation. Up next, the bill goes to a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives.
PICTURE THIS. The NDG&F Dept. announces the opening of its annual watchable wildlife photo contest, which runs through Oct. 2. Photographers can upload their pics on the contest landing page and are allowed up to five entries.
NOT SUMMERY. Following Saturday’s summer solstice, things will feel more like our stalled spring again as temperatures forecast for the week appear stuck in the upper sixties. Don’t put the long sleeved shirts away just yet!
