IRON RIVER.—North America’s waterfowl and other wildlife species face more and more threats every day: habitat loss, predation, pollution, disease, and more.
With Ducks Unlimited, we’re working hard to identify the factors that limit our wildlife populations or design conservation programs that insure healthy wildlife for the future.
Once again, the Iron County Ducks Unlimited Committee is hard at work planning the 34th annual banquet to be held at the Iron County Armory, Saturday, Oct. 27, at 5:30 p.m.
Tickets for the event must be purchased prior to the banquet. Tickets are available from committee members, Miners’ Harvest Jewelers, Saigh Insurance or T&T Gun Sales.
There are many door prizes including a grand door prize of a canoe/kayak package. Other quality prizes include guns, limited edition art, unique DU products, and the popular Commemorative Shotgun given in Memory of Jim Sapletal.
This year Ducks Unlimited celebrates its 75th anniversary.
To date, DU has raised more than $3.5 billion, which contributed to the conservation of nearly 13 million acres of wetlands and associated upland habitat across North American.
The Ducks Unlimited Committee is looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new friends at the banquet, Oct. 27 at 5:30 p.m. at the Iron County Armory.
If you have questions, comments, concerns or need tickets, call Dan French, chairperson, at 906-265-5725.
