Less than a year ago the DNR switched from having credentialed park rangers in state parks to having conservation wardens. We talk about why the DNR has decided to make the switch back to rangers on this week’s Wisconsin News Roundup. We also hear from First Congressional candidate Nick Polce and from gubernatorial candidate Mahlon Mitchell.
