Christine Hamilton of Kimball will serve as president, Jan Nicolay of Sioux Falls will serve as vice president and Steve Halverson of Pierre will serve as secretary/treasurer for the organization. “I’m honored by the opportunity to serve South Dakota in this capacity, and I’m looking forward to working with fellow board members to support projects that establish new habitat and promote the benefits of conservation practices. Land stewardship is so important now, and critical for future generations,” stated Hamilton. Other members continuing their service on the board include: Jeff Scherschligt and Scott Lawrence of Sioux Falls; Doug Balvin of Huron; Tony Bour and Larry Ness of Yankton; Tim Kessler of Aberdeen; Les Lindskov of Isabel; DeLon Mork and erested in this spot? Terry Schultz of Madison; Dick Muth and Jack Theeler of Mitchell. GFP Department Secretary Kelly Hepler and GFP Commissioner Barry Jensen of White River serve as ex officio members of the Board. In 2017, grants in the amount of $611,000 were distributed for 12 projects that improved wildlife habitat and provided incentives for additional hunting opportunities on Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) lands in South Dakota. More information is available online at http://habitat. sd.gov/resources/habitatconservationfund.aspx. The Foundation also recently received its nonprofit determination from the Internal Revenue Service, so it can now accept tax deductible donations directly. The Foundation will continue to work with the South Dakota Community Foundation to raise and manage endowed funds held by the Community Foundation for wildlife habitat and water quality improvement projects in South Dakota. About the South Dakota Habitat Conservation Foundation: The South Dakota Habitat Conservation Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides funding for wildlife habitat and water quality projects. This foundation manages an endowed fund established at the South Dakota Community Foundation stemming from one of the eight recommendations of the Governor’s 2013 Habitat Summit, and it also receives tax deductible donations directly that are not endowed. Periodically, it will provide grants from both non-endowed contributions and earnings from endowed contributions at the South Dakota Community Foundation for projects conducted in South Dakota. In the coming year, the foundation will undergo a strategic planning process to identify future project priorities.

PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) food plot program was developed nearly 50 years ago to assist landowners in providing winter food sources for wildlife. Landowners can receive free corn or sorghum seed to plant each spring, plus a payment to help offset planting costs. The program took a step forward in 2015, offering landowners a third seed option, called the brood mix. The brood mix is an annual mixture of cover crop species (i.e. canola, flax, millet, radish, sunflower), designed to flower from spring through fall and produce seed for wildlife to forage on during winter. By flowering, the brood mix provides pollinator habitat that traditional corn and sorghum food plots lack. Pollinating insects (i.e. bees and butterflies) thrive in areas with flowering plants. Insects comprise nearly 100% of a pheasant chick’s diet, therefore making habitats with high insect numbers for pheasant chicks to forage a key component of pheasant production. Landowners enrolled in the program still retain and may regulate all hunting access privileges; however they cannot charge anyone a fee in exchange for hunting access. For more information and to find a habitat advisor in your area, visit http://habitat.sd.gov/ or contact a GFP biologist at 605.353.7145. Seed is typically distributed in May, so it is important that interested landowners get signed up as soon as possible.
