Don’t poo-poo moose poop

What are moose poop and pee good for? That’s a science question, and research on Isle Royale and in northeast Minnesota shows moose effectively transfer nitrogen — an essential nutrient for forest health — from the aquatic plants they chow down on to fertilize the forest.

Isle Royale gets historic designation

The National Park Service has put Isle Royale – Minong in Ojibwe – on the National Register of Historic Places. The action formally recognizes centuries of historic legacies of the 400-island archipelago in Lake Superior, including copper mining, fishing, hunting, trapping, recreation and a wide range of uses by the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
