The recently appointed director of Iowa’s Department of Natural Resources says he’s truly enjoyed his first few months on the job. Jeff Vonk was the state’s U-S-D-A conservationist in the early 90s before taking a job as the California state conservationist. Vonk says there are a number of things which concern Iowans that could soon find their way onto the D-N-R’s agenda, such as water quality issues, the deer population. Governor Vilsack named Vonk to head the D-N-R in mid-February. Vonk replaced Paul Johnson, who quit in May of 2000.
