Allison & Doug Frey: Making Connections between the Boreal and the Heartland

Allison and Doug Frey of Midland, Texas, proudly support DU's Boreal Forest Initiative, dedicating to conserving the critical breeding habitats of North America's Boreal Forest for thousands of ducks and geese. Doug is originally from the Rainwater Basin area of Nebraska and clearly sees the connections among protected breeding grounds, healthy migration habitat and the birds he sees in Texas each year. The Freys' story appeared in the 2013 DU Annual Report.
