To date in California, DU has conserved a total of 719,000 acres in spending $202.8 million on Golden State projects. With respect to Pacific Flyway projects, DU has spent $360 million and conserved 1,015 acres.

A large turnout helps DU continue its conservation mission and ensure that the skies are filled with waterfowl today, tomorrow and future generations. Among those expected to attend is Jan Young, DU Recruitment Chairman for California.

“The Placerville chapter has been at the top on the state in terms of fundraising. The committee is very hardworking and does a great job searching for donations,” Young said.
