Photo Essay: Spring on the Prairies

A look at what breeding waterfowl will find as they return to the Duck Factory
Unfortunately native prairie is being lost at an alarming rate across the Duck Factory. In addition, many former Conservation Reserve Program lands in the Dakotas are returning to crop production. Consequently, waterfowl will find less suitable habitat on the prairies this spring than last year. Ducks Unlimited is working closely with the agricultural community in both the United States and Canada to conserve prairie wetlands and grasslands on working farms and ranches.
