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: $15 (OSU Student w/ ID), $50 (OSU Student w/ Parent), $45 (Single), $75 (Couple), $275 (Sponsor Couple), $500 (Party Table of 8) and include dinner and a 1-year membership to Ducks Unlimited. There will be raffles for various hunting products as well as a silent and live auction. This event is for the whole family!
