Record high campaign spending, teaching Ojibwe culture in public schools, and Wisconsin’s bear den survey

Then, the Watersmeet Township School District is making a change this school year. It’s bringing Ojibwe culture and language into the classroom. Finally, researchers are gearing up to dive into bear dens. It’s to better understand the reproductive health of Wisconsin’s black bear population.
