This week marked the 75th anniversary of one our great sportsman-based conservation groups, Ducks Unlimited. What began as a small group of Depression-era hunters trying desperately to save our dwindling waterfowl populations in the depths of the Dust Bowl has grown into one the largest, most recognizable and respected conservation brands in North America.

From a DU press release: “DU’s 75th anniversary is a monumental moment in conservation history,” said Dale Hall, CEO of Ducks Unlimited. “This anniversary˜and the last 75 years of science-based, on-the-ground conservation work across North America˜would not be possible without the dedication of our volunteers and supporters, as well as the partners who time and time again helped us succeed in our mission. This celebration is as much theirs as it is ours.”his past weekend marked the 75th anniversary of one our great sportsman-based conservation groups, Ducks Unlimited.
