The state D-N-R is looking for volunteers to help find wolves and other carnivores this winter.
The state has been monitoring the animals since 1995. Last year, about 150 volunteers surveyed about eight-thousand miles of roads. The volunteers look for tracks as they drive slowly on isolated roads. They also use snowmobiles, cross-country skis, and snow-shoes. The new volunteers will need to attend tracking and wolf-ecology classes. More information is available at the D-N-R's Web site, accessible at Wisconsin-Dot-Gov.
