The very first DU conservation project - Photo Courtesy DU
Ducks Unlimited is commemorating its 75th anniversary year at fundraising banquets all across North America. DU also recognizes that this was a prime time to unlock their memorabelia vault and share with others 'The Story of Ducks Unlimited' - the title of their new coffee table book. The entire history of DU is laid out for readers in such a compelling fashion that it makes anyone appreciate this organization being a leader in the area of waterfowl conservation. The photography in the book is top notch and will please duck hunters, and plenty of historical photos help to tell the story of how the tough times during the depression and dust bowl led to the foundation of this organization, who owes everything to their volunteer members. I am glad to share a preview of this book for everyone as published in the Charleston Mercury.
