Once known as a license required for duck hunters, the Federal Duck Stamp, also known as the Migratory Bird Stamp, is much more than that today. Birders, wildlife biologists, conservationists, and nature lovers buy Duck Stamps each year. Why, you might ask?

1. Funds raised from Duck Stamp sales enable the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to lease and purchase wetlands for protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System.

2. A current Duck Stamp serves as an admission pass to any national wildlife refuge which charges an admission fee.

3. A Duck Stamp purchase, is, dollar for dollar, one of the best investments one can make in the future of America’s wetlands.

4. The Duck Stamp is beautiful, collectable art!

Learn more about the Federal Duck Stamp Prgram here. Then purchase one for yourself, and one for a friend.  It's a wonderful way to support wetland conservation and migratory bird habitat for years to come.
