Jordan Sands Sponsors Governor’s Pheasant Opener
Mankato, Minn. – Oct. 8, 2015 – Jordan Sands, an industrial sand mining and processing operation based in North Mankato, is a Gold Sponsor of the Governor’s Pheasant Opener happening this weekend in Mankato. Jordan Sands is loaning part of its property north of Mankato for hunting groups in the Governor’s party with employees guiding the groups through the local prairie and farm fields.
“Jordan Sands is thrilled to be part of this event which highlights a great tradition in Minnesota and spotlights the outstanding outdoor recreational activities in our area,” said Brett Skilbred, Jordan Sands Director of Resource Development.
Originally introduced in 2011 by Governor Dayton, the event has been held in various locations around central and southern Minnesota. Mankato was selected as the host community this year based on its hunting land, event facilities, and supportive community. The Mankato area boasts more than 9,100 acres of public hunting land within 20 miles of the city.
