Educating youth about wetlands and waterfowl is a big part of our mission at Ducks Unlimited Canada. To protect and sustain the health of precious natural resources like wetlands and watersheds, we need to make sure young people understand conservation concepts and practices.

We offer a variety of award winning education programs and partnerships to engage youth and empower them to make a difference in their own communities.
