WOODRUFF - S'mores, sleeping bags, and firewood are usually at the top of people's camping checklist.

A recent law change made it legal to move firewood but the DNR still hopes people don't.

Since 2014, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources banned bringing your own firewood to a state property, unless you live 10 miles or closer to the property.

"[The ban is] to attempt to prevent the spread of invasive diseases and insects that can have a detrimental impact on our forests," said DNR State Forest Team Leader Tom Shockley.

He says currently, the entire state of Wisconsin in now quarantined for the invasive species emerald ash bore and gypsy moth, meaning it's no longer illegal to move wood across county lines.

RHINELANDER - You need to really get outside into nature to truly appreciate it.  That's what Oneida County hopes you experience walking through its new pollinator garden behind the courthouse, which is close to completion.

Workers from Hanson's Garden Village laid out the key part to getting you into that garden along Baird Avenue on Tuesday.  The gravel walkway allows water to drain into the soil, preventing runoff into the street.

A $1,500 Wisconsin Public Service Foundation grant paid for almost all of the walkway, which will lead through the garden to a picnic table.  The walkway will be ADA-accessible, which will allow people with wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers to navigate the garden.
