WHAT DUCKS UNLIMITED IS ABOUT
Ducks Unlimited is the world's leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation.
DU got its start in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when North America’s drought-plagued waterfowl populations had plunged to unprecedented lows. Determined not to sit idly by as the continent’s waterfowl dwindled beyond recovery, a small group of sportsmen joined together to form an organization that became known as Ducks Unlimited.
Thanks to decades of abiding by that single mission, Ducks Unlimited is now the world’s largest and most effective private waterfowl and wetlands conservation organization. DU is able to multilaterally deliver its work through a series of partnerships with private individuals, landowners, agencies, scientific communities and other entities.
Ducks Unlimited conserves, restores, and manages wetlands and associated habitats for North America's waterfowl. These habitats also benefit other wildlife and people.
At our last banquet, artist Calvin Carter, presented the commissioned "Family Time" to Mr. Oliver Smart. Mr. Smart bid on the unusual package at the 2010 banquet. Mr. Carter would follow three generations of Smart family members on a hunting and fishing trip. He would take pictures and then come back to his studio and recreate that cherished day. Please see the Calvin Carter page with some of his other beautiful paintings.
