The Chippewa National Forest has changed substantially in the last 30 years or so.  Its composition is different; more maple and less food available in the understory.

Now, armed with baseline data from the '80s, MN DNR biologists are taking to the woods between Grand Rapids and Bigfork to see how these changes are affecting black bears.
