Spring is on the horizon and with it the D-N-R’s outdoor learning webinars are shifting to warmer weather skills. One of the first early spring-focused webinars, led by Minnesota State Park Naturalist Kao Thao, detailed maple syrup collecting in Minnesota.

“So by this time all the sap are flowing, and this would be the perfect time to tap a tree, because when it is flowing, all the sap are going.”

Other upcoming webinar topics include bees and other Minnesota pollinators, picking the right rifle caliber for game hunting, steelhead fishing and a deep dive on so-called “rough fish”. All webinars are free and also available on demand on the D-N-R website.
