Minnesota Ag Connection - 02/14/2020

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will participate in Pheasant Fest at the Minneapolis Convention Center Feb. 14-16. DNR Commissioner Sarah Strommen will attend both Friday and Saturday.

Strommen will join John Jaschke, executive director of the Board of Water and Soil Resources, and Department of Agriculture Commissioner Thom Petersen to answer questions from the public at the Leadership Office Hours on Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. at the DNR booth.

She will also be part of the "Your Public Lands" panel at 11 a.m. Saturday. The same day, at 12:40 p.m., she'll speak at the Women, Wine and Wild Game event. At 2 p.m. she'll address the Pheasants Forever State Convention.

The DNR's booth is directly adjacent to other state and federal agencies. Throughout the weekend there will be giveaways, a scavenger hunt and a display of upland bird wings and mammal skulls. DNR field staff and leadership will be on hand to answer questions throughout the event.

Pheasant Fest is a tradeshow and convention for upland hunters, landowners, bird dog lovers, wild game cooking enthusiasts and wildlife habitat conservationists. It is hosted by Pheasants Forever, a nonprofit conservation group dedicated to the conservation of pheasants and other wildlife through habitat improvement, public awareness and land management policies and programs.
