Bill Penning, DNR Prairie Wildlife Habitat Specialist

Join Sonja and Bill Penning, DNR Prairie Wildlife Habitat Specialist, this Thursday at 1 p.m. as they cover a variety of important information pertaining to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. A main issue is the 25-year document called the Minnesota Prairie Conservation Plan, in which a coalition of conservation groups and agencies have worked together to create a strategy to continue to restore, protect, and enhance Minnesota wildlife lands.

They also discuss a variety of programs within the DNR, such as the Walk-In Access Program and the Native Prairie Bank Program. They'll also briefly touch on the upcoming pheasant opener and what to expect this season.
