Here’s to 30 More Great Years, Pheasants Forever

Last weekend, I had the good fortune to visit Pheasant Fest in Minnesota to help Pheasants Forever, one of our key partners, celebrate its 30th anniversary.

Together with the hunters and conservationists of Pheasants Forever we have accomplished some amazing things. Our collaborations have resulted in the long-term conservation of thousands of acres of habitat for wildlife in the grasslands across the country.

Many experiences can teach people to appreciate and value nature – hiking, nature-watching, photographing the beauty of the outdoors and many others – but perhaps none offers a better way to learn the importance of stewardship and sustainability than hunting.
