Dennis Anderson: Bank gives landowners committed to restoring Minnesota wetlands a financial incentive

In 2017, fewer Minnesota duck-hunting licenses were sold than at any time in recent history. The falloff wasn't a surprise: Wetland drainage across southern, western and northwestern parts of the state has occurred for more than a century, leaving not only ducks, but muskrats, turtles, herons, cranes, terns, frogs, invertebrates and a host of aquatic plants, ranging from wild celery to sago pondweed, fewer places to live.

Electric bikes make it easier to do daily activities without owning a car

Hard-core cyclists may not be paying attention to the rise of pedal-assisted bicycles, but they're a growing market that's enabling a large group of the population to better enjoy the experience of riding on two wheels. With an electric motor, this new generation of bikes gives you as much, or as little help as needed, providing a boost up hills or simply taking you further than you could otherwise go. The California-based Yuba Bicycles makes both traditional and pedal-assisted cargo bikes, which are designed to give you options for hauling goods (and kids) easily while retaining a light and nimble feel.
