Banding Together for Waterfowl
Ducks Unlimited: Leader in Wetlands Conservation

DU land acquisition increases public access

Waterfowl hunters and birdwatchers alike will soon have increased access to Stewart Lake, one of the best remaining and least disturbed backwater lakes in the Illinois River Valley. Located adjacent to Sanganois State Fish and Wildlife Area in a large, inaccessible area of Mason County, this 1,500-acre shallow-lake wetland is an important natural rest area for migrating northern pintails, mallards, and many other species of ducks.
