Ducks Unlimited recently partnered with the MeadWestvaco Corporation (MWV) to create an impoundment for waterfowl on the Featherbed Plantation in South Carolina's Lowcountry. This partnership presents great opportunities for future wetland conservation projects in this historically important area for waterfowl. DU is also working with MWV to explore several other habitat enhancement opportunities.

"MWV and DU share a deep commitment to land stewardship that enhances wildlife habitat and creates recreational opportunities," said Kenneth T. Seeger, president of MWV Community Development and Land Management. "By partnering with DU, we've created unique and valuable habitat for migratory waterfowl. The upland impoundment on Featherbed Plantation offers an opportunity to experience waterfowl hunting at its best in the Lowcountry of South Carolina."

MVW, the global leader in packaging and packaging solutions, owns more than 700,000 acres of sustainably managed forestlands. The company's rural tract program offers forested land that is enhanced to promote sporting traditions and rural lifestyles. From wildlife food plots and stocked ponds to well-maintained forest roads and tree farms boasting the best genetics available, MWV is using what it has learned from decades of land ownership to bring out the best in each property.
