The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is celebrating the success of the Vermont Duck Stamp Program. 

“The Vermont Duck Stamp program has been responsible for some of our state’s greatest conservation success stories,” said Louis Porter, commissioner of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. 

 “The waterfowl hunters, birders, and others who have purchased a Duck Stamp within the past 30 years have allowed us to preserve a wide array of wetlands throughout Vermont that will remain forever wild and accessible to the public,” added Porter. 

Officials say since 1986 the Vermont Duck Stamp Program has raised $4.5 million to help with the conservation of almost 12,000 acres on 93 different projects. 

If you would like to attend the celebration, it’s at the Mallet’s Creek Wildlife Management Area on Thursday, September 8, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
