Prairie State Outdoors

Sunday, Jan. 29, marks Ducks Unlimited’s 75th anniversary.

The anniversary celebration will continue throughout the year with special events in each state, merchandise, projects and promotions.

The kickoff anniversary event will be held in New York City, home to DU’s first headquarters.

A new section of the DU website, located at http://www.ducks.org/75, provides a comprehensive chronicling of the organization’s conservation legacy.

DU’s 75th anniversary book, “The Ducks Unlimited Story,” was released in December.

This 208-page coffee-table book by Michael Furtman covers DU’s first 75 years and features never-before-seen photos and documents from the DU archives.

The book is available online now and a special edition will be offered at DU events throughout 2012.

Also highlighted online and in print this year will be 50 state projects.

Conservation staff chose a project from each state for stand-out impact.

These project profiles are featured on the DU website and will be displayed at DU state conventions and 75th anniversary events.

“Conservation for Generations” is the theme of the celebration, with an emphasis on conserving wetlands and waterfowl for future generations.

as well as getting those future generations involved with DU today, by bringing a new hunter to the duck blind or purchasing a Greenwing youth membership for a child.
