"Day of Action" Events Raise Awareness in North Dakota

Volunteers have been fanning out across North Dakota to gather signatures for the Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks Amendment. Ducks Unlimited is part of the sponsoring committee for this constitutional measure, which would dedicate a small portion of the state's existing oil and gas taxes for conservation.

North Dakota: Delbert and Donna Eszlinger

Delbert and Donna Eszlinger run a successful Angus beef cattle operation, located in McIntosh County, N.D. Delbert's father started the ranch in 1940 with 160 acres.

Hal Kantrud Wetland

DU repaired the emergency spillway at the Hal Kantrud Wetland in the fall of 2004 and installed a small agri-drain water control structure. The repaired spillway will alleviate future erosion within the emergency spillway and allow better water management opportunities to improve habitat for breeding waterfowl.

Lynch Dam

DU installed a water control structure and excavated a new emergency spillway in the Lynch Dam, during the Fall and Winter 2004/2005, to restore the wetland to it’s original elevation. These improvements will help alleviate future flooding problems and will allow for water level manipulations, which will greatly improve habitat conditions for breeding waterfowl and other waterbirds.

Winter Cereals Program

Farmer enrollments in Ducks Unlimited’s Winter Cereals Program has grown from 1,100 the program’s first year to over 8,000 acres this year. DU provides a $7 an acre incentive to producers for up to 150 acres, under three year contracts. Research indicates winter cereal crops, such as winter wheat, provide nesting cover that helps produce 35 times more ducks than spring seeded crops.
