DNR gets new plate from Hutch native 12 Aug 14

Minnesota motorists can support conservation with a new critical habitat license plate featuring moose art by renowned wildlife artist Les Kouba.  The new moose plate, which displays a never-before-published painting by the Hutchinson native, is the eighth critical habitat plate offered. Other plates display the loon, pheasant, chickadee, showy lady’s slipper, a fishing scene and white-tailed deer.  Critical habitat license plate revenue has generated more than $25 million toward the purchase of 7,700 acres of critical habitat and helped fund non-game wildlife research and surveys, habitat enhancement and educational programs.
