Diamond Legacy Sponsors John and Cheryl Dale are making a significant difference for the ducks through their philanthropic investment in the conservation of prairie grasslands and Canada's western boreal forest. John Dale, who has been a DU member since high school, also serves on the board of Wetlands America Trust.

"One of the greatest blessings anyone can have is the ability to truly appreciate all the wonderful things our natural world possesses," John Dale said. "Our involvement in DU has given Cheryl and me the opportunity to help preserve, enhance, and restore some of these natural wonders. Conserving these treasures before they are lost is the mission of Ducks Unlimited and Wetlands America Trust. The work being done is vital to the future of wetlands and waterfowl."
