At age 94, Glen Michelson says “he’s had a lot of good years.” DUC is privileged to have been part of many of them. Beginning in 1939, Glen served as one of DUC’s original “Keeman” volunteers. He’d survey the land and wildlife around his home near Stirling, Alberta and send his reports back to DUC. These Keeman reports were vital to DUC’s early days, as the organization worked to put water back on the parched prairie landscape. As DUC celebrates its 80th anniversary, we’re honoured to share Glen’s story. His passion for wetlands, waterfowl and the people with whom he loved to share them is still as strong as ever.
