The Habitat Organization Hires Josh Bleicher as Regional Representative for Indiana and Kentucky


Avid upland enthusiast brings knowledge and experience to regional position

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are proud to introduce Josh Bleicher as the incoming regional representative for Indiana and Kentucky. In his new role, Bleicher will work directly with local chapter networks to actively improve public and private lands conservation efforts for pheasants, quail, and other wildlife.

“Josh’s passion for the outdoors is unsurpassed,” said Jerry McDonald, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s director of chapter and volunteer services. “I am confident he will be off to an unwavering start building relationships and strengthening chapters in his region.”

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever empower county and local chapters with the responsibility to determine how 100 percent of their locally raised conservation funds will be spent - the only national conservation organization that operates through this grassroots structure. As a result, chapter volunteers can see the fruits of their efforts locally, while belonging to a larger national organization with a voice on federal and state conservation policy. Bleicher will help guide local chapters to achieve the organizations mission in Indiana and Kentucky. 

Bleicher has a BA in advertising from the Illinois Institute of Art, and most recently, Bleicher worked as field support for the city of Fishers’ parks department. Throughout his career, he has gained 15 years of experience in customer service and campaign management.

“I’m a lifelong hunter and upland enthusiast,” Bleicher said. “Combining that with my experience in sales and marketing has prepared me to support local chapters, continue creating a strong culture within the upland community and become an official advocate for the mission of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever.”
