Jordan Pusateri Burroughs is the nation’s first Boone and Crockett Club extension specialist. Her position is a jointly funded partnership between Michigan State University Extension and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, with operation funding provided by an endowment started by the Boone and Crockett Club. As a wildlife outreach specialist, Jordan is passionate about working with partners and stakeholders to bridge the science-policy interface by creating and disseminating knowledge to improve our joint understanding of complex wildlife-related issues. As founder of both Gourmet Gone Wild and Michigan’s Learn to Hunt Program, Jordan creates and provides oversight for a number of innovative conservation and hunting recruitment efforts including program administration, design, delivery, and evaluation. A self-proclaimed foodie and adult-onset hunter-gatherer, Jordan’s programs embrace the locavore and sustainable eating/living trends in order to recruit new, adult hunters and build social support for hunting among nontraditional, adult audiences. She is a fellow of the Great Lakes Leadership Academy, the National Conservation Leadership Institute, and LEAD-21.
