Looking for a few good cone collectors
DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - June 6, 2011 (WPVI) -- Officials at one national forest are pining for cones.
The U.S. Forest Service is paying people to collect pine cones in Minnesota's Superior National Forest.
Native jack pine cones are needed to reforest the area.
Folks can earn $50 to $70 for bushels of the pine cones.
The brown, tighter cones are worth the most.
The cone bounty runs until July 1.
Would-be pine cone hunters have to be registered to get paid.
