With the entire California State Senate in attendance and onlookers in the viewing gallery, state Sen. Lois Wolk and Assemblyman Bill Berryhill officially honored Ducks Unlimited for its 75th anniversary with a state resolution on Feb. 23.

Mark Biddlecomb, director of DU's Western Region, accepted the beautifully framed document and thanked the legislators for their commitment to wetlands conservation in California and across North America.

"To have the California legislature recognize DU's dedication—recognize all of our hard work—is extremely gratifying," Biddlecomb said. "With their continued support, we'll keep doing what we do best: on-the-ground conservation, preservation and restoration of imperiled wetlands and habitat."
