Let's hope the 'new DNR' remembers its legacy

By Kurt Krueger

PRESERVING wildlife and special places has been a major focus of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for 40 years, ever since legislators passed Wisconsin’s own Endangered Species Act.
Throughout 2012, the agency plans to celebrate its legacy of caring for the state’s natural heritage. On its website, the department will showcase videos, slide shows and the story behind many of the restoration efforts.
That’s all great, except that the scribbler still isn’t convinced that in the years ahead, the “new DNR” will pay the same attention to key environmental factors like water quality and wildlife habitat.
