The 2022 Contra Costa County Ducks Unlimited Fundraising Dinner was attended by more than 100 local waterfowlers who contributed needed funds to DU’s conservation programs.
The Ducks Unlimited Mission
Waterfowl conservation is facing important challenges as wetlands and other habitats are being degraded and destroyed across the continent. DU has a vision to reverse this trend.
The Ducks Unlimited mission is to conserve, restore and manage wetlands and associated habitats for North American waterfowl. They recognize that these same habitats also benefit other wildlife and people.
Your event ticket, raffle ticket, silent auction and live auction purchases help to fund conservation activity directly. 81 cents out of every dollar raised goes into projects that conserve wetlands and increase hunting habitat.
How DU Conserves Habitat:
- Restoring grasslands
- Replanting forests
- Restoring watersheds
- Working with landowners
- Working with partners
- Acquiring land
- Conservation easements
- Management agreements
- Geographic Information Systems
