Ducks Unlimited is working to bring the great outdoors a little closer. DU is helping develop a new nature-based recreation park in north Bismarck. Surveying the site and other preliminary work is being done in hopes DU will soon be able to buy the land

Partnering with Bismarck Parks and Recreation, DU is raising money to purchase the land, as well as restore natural features, such as wetlands and native prairie. The 120-acre park will provide the Bismarck-Mandan area with plenty of new outdoor opportunities, with trails for hiking and biking, pet-friendly trails, restored wetlands and trees for education and birdwatching.
