MINOCQUA - If you take a look outside, it's easy to notice the beauty of the Northwoods.
But you might wonder how it got to be that way and how we can protect its future?
Those were some of the questions answered tonight at "Science on Tap" in Minocqua.
The monthly series kicked off at the Minocqua Brewing Company.
The topic was environmental history of the Northwoods.
Scientists working in the area spoke and answered questions.
"I would like there to be, in the public a greater ease with science. So that we can elevate the conversation to talk about some of the issues really pressing, not only in the northwoods but nationally," said speaker Tim Kratz, Director at the Trout Lake Station.
The free event will be back March 6th.
The topic for that "Science on Tap" will be climate change.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
