Pennsylvania is uniquely positioned in the Atlantic Flyway as a critical connection point for waterfowl in all stages of their lifecycle. The state links waterfowl between Canadian breeding grounds and wintering grounds, between Lake Erie, Chesapeake Bay, Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Coast.
Thanks to support from members, donors and partners, Ducks Unlimited conservation staff in Pennsylvania continue to execute an ambitious wetland restoration and protection plan across a range of habitats. Priorities include enhancing existing managed wetlands and developing new managed wetlands where appropriate on public waterfowl areas.
Ducks Unlimited’s staff and volunteers in Pennsylvania support DU’s Completing the Cycle Initiative. This initiative focuses on conserving wetlands in critical areas that offer the best opportunities for a sustainable future for waterfowl, as well as cleaner water.
