Pheasants Forever

Concern over the loss of habitat has led the Twin Cities-based conservation group Pheasants Forever to open its first regional office in South Dakota. The group’s long-time vice president of government affairs, Dave Nomsen, opened new state headquarters in Brookings this week and has started his new role as Pheasants Forever’s first South Dakota Director. Nomsen is a graduate of South Dakota State University and served on the faculty of the wildlife department. He’s been with Pheasants Forever since 1992.
