The good and the bad in the environmental omnibus

At the end of March we sent a letter to both the Senate and the House of Representatives sharing our thoughts.

About Nels Paulsen

Nels Paulsen
A man of few words, but a great deal of action, Nels Paulsen serves as policy manager for Conservation Minnesota. In that role, he helps the organization set our public policy strategy and then works with the field and communications teams to see that they are successfully implemented. A passion for the great outdoors was a driving force behind the Wisconsin-native’s decision to become a lawyer, and ultimately join our team. 

Saying that his perfect day includes fishing, and that the three things he can’t live without are a fishing pole, his phone and cheese, it only seems natural that he describes his favorite place in the state as being Lake Saganaga. On May 13, 1979, the state record walleye was pulled from the waters just outside the cabin his family owns up there.
