From November 15 through December 25, pause and de-stress from the frantic pace of the holidays with a daily #MomentofChill –which may involve a frolicking puppy, a crackling fireplace, or the soothing ripples of an untouched stream.
The watershed of Alaska’s Bristol Bay is home to the world’s last great wild-salmon population. Each year, more than 50 million sockeyes entered the system, returning to their natal waters to spawn. This migration sustains the entire ecosystem–from brown bears, to eagles, to other fish species–as well as robust commercial and recreational fishing industries.
To find out how you can help preserve this incredible natural bounty, visit Save Bristol Bay.
The grasslands of central South Dakota are ground zero for pheasant hunting in America. Common pheasants (known throughout the U.S as ring-necked pheasants) are native to China and were first introduced in Oregon in 1881. Throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s, many more birds–mostly from English game-bird farms–were released across the country.
Although 2018 saw an uptick in pheasant populations across South Dakota, the long-term trend is not so rosy. Statewide, the number of pheasants is down 41% over the past decade. To learn more, visit Pheasants Forever.
