A Talk on the Wild Side.
Welcome to That's a Wrap, a weekly round up of what's been going on in and around the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service! Every Friday, we'll supply you with the best news and info you'll need before heading out the door for the weekend.
And now, a disclaimer! We can't gather all of these lovely tidbits ourselves, so some of our links will take you away from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife website. We will never knowingly link to anything malicious, but we are obliged to tell you to be careful out there.

... learned about a new, invasive species threat to the Upper Mississippi River.
