[TN-Bird] More on DUCKS AND CONSERVATION

With all the talk about buying Duck Stamps, I thought it timely to mention
that last January I joined Ducks Unlimited.  86% of my $35.00 membership
cost goes toward conservation and education.  While Duck Stamp money goes
toward wetlands easements, Ducks Unlimited money goes toward grasslands
easements, particularly in the Dakotas and Missouri.  They are pushing hard
right now to keep native praries intact.  DU is also active in habitat
restoration in TENN, with over 27,000 acres conserved to date.
 

Also, this Sept will be the first time the Duck Stamp artist design
competition will be held outside of Wash DC.  It will be held here in
Memphis, at the headquarters of Ducks Unlimited.

 

If you would like me to email you a "fact sheet" on DU, please let me know.
You can join DU by calling 1-800-45-DUCKS.
