Winter is bear(ly) holding on

Get it?! Oh well, whenever I get my next issue of Mizzou Magazine, I can usually figure on an article or two about the environment and once again, it held true.

As someone who believes that ecosystems need to be complete to be healthy, it appears that at least of the Missouri forests are beginning to return to a healthy biological balance after nearly two hundred years.

This according to Lori Eggert in the article “Bear Down, Bear Up” by Dale Smith in Mizzou Magazine. There’s also a nice article over at Science Daily on the same study entitled “Black Bears Return to Missouri Indicates Healthy Forests“.

Hopefully, those bears will get a chance to come out of their dens and play soon. At least around here, winter just won’t let go.

Sincerely-
