“Ducks Unlimited got its start in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when North America’s drought-plagued waterfowl populations had plunged to unprecedented lows,” said Johanna Taylor, a wildlife and fisheries resources student at WVU. “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.”
The West Virginia University Chapter of Ducks Unlimited was founded in March of 2011.
“Our club is full of ambition and eagerness to help our community through wetland restoration projects and public awareness,” said Taylor. “All of our members enjoy working together towards duck and wetland conservation.”
