85 Years of Conservation

On January 29, 2022, Ducks Unlimited will celebrate 85 years of conservation. The organization, founded by waterfowl hunters during the Dust Bowl of 1937, is today the world's leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation, having conserved more than 15 million acres across North America. As waterfowl seasons wind down across the United States, it's time to take a step back and look at past successes, but also look forward to what's in store for 2022.
