It's hard to live in South Dakota and not enjoy our great outdoors.  And when I thing of the many things to enjoy it would be easy for me or someone with that same interest to have a daily hands-on connection.

With that in mind South Dakota State University has a new major that can help start your career in the outdoors.

SDSU is now accepting students into the Conservation Planning & Park Management major for Fall 2017.

Students will learn skills including marketing, public relations, program development, park management, landscape conservation planning, and natural areas management.

The field is predicted to have strong job growth in the future, both nationally and in South Dakota.
