Buy Your 2020-2021 Federal Duck Stamp


DU CEO Adam Putnam and Team DU are proud to celebrate the First Day of Sale for the Federal Duck Stamp. Around 1.5 million duck stamps are sold every year, and revenue from those sales has contributed over $1 billion to wetlands conservation since 1934. By law, the proceeds from those sales go into the Migratory Bird Conservation Fund to be used specifically for the benefit of ducks, geese, and other migratory birds.
