Pheasants Forever Journal Editor Herwig Elected OWAA Secretary
(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) MISSOULA, Mont., Oct. 2 -- Pheasants Forever issued the following news release:
At the recent Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) annual conference, the OWAA Board of Directors elected Mark Herwig, of St. Paul, Minn., secretary of the board. Herwig has served as Pheasants Forever's editor since 1998.
Herwig will serve a three-year term as secretary of the OWAA Board of Directors. He has been an outdoor writer since freelancing for the Colorado Outdoors and Colorado Wildlife Federation magazines in the early 1980s. He has been editor of Pheasants Forever's three magazines and a blog since 1998. Herwig is also a freelance writer for such publications as the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association's Whitetales magazine and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resource's Conservation Volunteer magazine.
"My newest passion is improving 44 acres of forest I purchased last year near Duluth, Minnesota, for game and non-game wildlife. I was asked to run for this position by a current board member and, considering what the outdoors has given me and the OWAA, I felt it was time to give back," Herwig said.
OWAA is The Voice of the Outdoors. The Outdoor Writers Association of America is the oldest and largest association of professional outdoor communicators in the United States. It was organized in 1927 by members of the Izaak Walton League of America and includes professional communicators dedicated to sharing the outdoor experience. OWAA's professionals include writers, photographers, outdoors radio- and television-show hosts, book authors, videographers, lecturers and artists.
