BOWMAN, N.D., Sept. 22, 2015 – Ducks Unlimited (DU) engineers recently completed repairs on a 58-acre wetland impoundment on the Alkali Creek Wildlife Management Area, near Bowman, North Dakota. The property is managed by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department (NDGFD).

$25 Million Dedicated to Living Lakes Initiative

In November 2008, Minnesota voters passed the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment, which added 3/8 of 1 percent to the state sales tax. One-third of the revenue generated by this amendment is placed in the state's Outdoor Heritage Fund (OHF) for competitive grants to state agencies and nonprofit conservation organizations such as Ducks Unlimited. This means that approximately $100 million can be used annually to protect, restore, and enhance habitat for fish and wildlife in Minnesota.
