Tippets: Sleeping Bears, Gallatin Cabin Rentals, Blue Ridge Grant, California No Fishing Law Arouses Interest
- A friendly reminder to let sleeping bears lie. Bears are not true hibernators and can wake up.
- Cabins used by the Forest Service in the Gallatin National Forest in Montana are now available to the public for nightly rentals.
- The National Wildlife Foundation, through Walmart’s 2012 Acres for America program, gave a $500,000 grant to the Blue Ridge Forever Coalition. The grant will be used to preserve 12,000 acres of prime brook trout habitat in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee.
- Authorities, anglers and commercial fishermen are all, at the very least, curious about the effect of a California law establishing marine preserves. Signed in 1999, the law did not take effect until 2007.
