      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

OutdoorMN News - DNR honors 2 youths for their conservation efforts

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources honored two youths for their outstanding conservation efforts during a ceremony Friday, Sept. 1, at the DNR volunteer outdoor stage at the Minnesota State Fair.

The DNR commissioner’s youth awards are given annually to an FFA student and 4-H member who have demonstrated initiative, leadership, creativity and achievement in conservation and wise use of natural and agricultural resources. This is the 26th year of the award program.

Lawrence Mettler from Burtrum, Minnesota, in Todd County, received the 4-H award, and Gunnar Frahm from Silver Bay, Minnesota, in Lake County, received the Future Farmers of America (FFA) award.

Encouraged by his teacher to pursue a project he was truly interested in, Mettler choose zebra mussels as the focus for his 4-H project. His project highlighted the fact that zebra mussels are an invasive species that cause detrimental impacts to Minnesota’s environment and economy. Hundreds of Minnesota’s lakes are infested with zebra mussels, and they continue to spread.

At the award ceremony, Mettler explained to the audience the measures that everyone should take to prevent the further spread of zebra mussels, such as the “Clean, Drain, Dry” techniques promoted by the DNR and its partners. Mettler is in 12th grade, and hopes to someday pursue a career in natural resource management. He is the son of Randy and Margaret Mettler.

Gunnar Frahm received the Commissioner’s FFA Youth award. His FFA project included three components: development of a butterfly garden, a Chaga mushroom experiment, and a white pine study. Noticing the heavy deer browsing and low survival of tree saplings, Frahm decided to research different methods for protecting young white pines.

He worked with staff at Tettegouche State Park to set up the research project, ultimately concluding that a lanolin-based spray was the most effective and efficient method tested.

At the award ceremony, Frahm explained to the audience that he hopes his findings will help others working to restore white pines. He is enrolled at the University of Minnesota-Duluth with a strong interest in the medical field. Frahm was joined at the award ceremony by his mother, Maureen Frahm.
