Water Sense – and ‘hot’ lake water

EPA has a new game site for kids, and adults too! If you remember that video game pac-man, you will want to try¬†Water Sense. Same concept as pac-man, move “Flo” around the plumbing to different ‘rooms’ and answer questions for points. Avoid the monsters, and gobble up the bonus points. 900 was my top score in two tries. Check it out!

Things are heating up all over the state, which isn’t a good thing for fish! Particularly in shallow lakes, where oxygen levels drop with increased water temperatures and fish have no where to go to escape. Northern pike, tulibee and whitefish are extremely susceptible to low oxygen levels. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources released a news update¬†regarding the high temps, some of which have hit the 90’s.

Stay cool!
