DUC celebrates Canada 150 by conserving and influencing 150,000 acres in 2017.
In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, DUC set-out to conserve and influence 150,000 acres (60 703 hectares) for waterfowl, for wildlife and for you. It was our gift to Canada. With the help of supporters—we delivered.

As Canadians, wildlife and wild places are ingrained in our identities. And regardless of where our lives take us, they always call us home. Happy 150th birthday, Canada. As conservationists and proud Canadians, DUC is honoured to “stand on guard for thee.”
