DUC-owned properties are restored and managed to provide habitat for North America’s waterfowl. Much of this work is made possible by the donors, volunteers and partners who support our conservation efforts. Hunters, like all other visitors, must seek permission from the respective landowners before entering a property. It is your responsibility to ensure that you follow the rules and regulations of each property, and that you have the proper permissions and permits.
We are pleased to be able to offer the public the opportunity to enjoy our properties. These are truly special places that our hard-earned money and the support of our members, the local community and other major funders have allowed us to protect.
We thank you for respecting them by enjoying their beauty and for continuing to support our wetland conservation efforts so that we can acquire more of these special places.
Access DUC properties
Users are responsible for ensuring that they are accessing property that is the sole property of DUC and not neighbouring lands without the necessary landowner authorization. If accessing DUC property to hunt, the hunter must comply with all applicable hunting regulations and municipal firearm discharge guidelines. Hunters are reminded that some of these properties have public trails and that they must ensure the safety of all users. In addition, these properties continue to undergo restoration, farm management and routine maintenance. From time to time, contractors and CIC staff may be working on the property, which could affect access.
Traffic on our properties is by foot only. Motorized vehicles are not permitted.
As DUC is a conservation organization, permanent caches or structures are not permitted on DUC-owned projects. Only portable caches are permitted. In addition, visitors are asked to be careful not to leave any trace of their passage, and therefore, to pick up all their garbage.
