Each year, local Ducks Unlimited chapters hold grassroots fundraising events to support the organization’s habitat conservation mission. Recent successful Oklahoma projects through DU’s Southern Prairies and Playas Initiative include work on Drummond Flats and Waurika wildlife management areas (WMAs). DU and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation made improvements on these public habitats to provide critical stopover and refueling habitats for waterfowl and improve public hunting opportunities.
Ticket prices are as follows: $35 (Student – In Advance), $45 (Student – At Door) $45 (Single), $70 (Couple), $15 (Greenwings - ages 17 and under), and includes dinner and a 1-year membership to Ducks Unlimited. There will be raffles for various hunting products as well as a silent auction. Help the OSU Chapter get into the Ducks Unlimited College Chapter Sweet 16! This event is for the whole family!
