2012 Federal Duck Stamps (adult and junior winners) and Federal Recreation Lands PassMake a difference for wildlife.

Purchase a Federal Duck Stamp
Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamps, commonly known as “Duck Stamps,” are pictorial stamps produced by the U.S. Postal Service for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.  They were originally created in 1934 as the federal licenses required for hunting migratory waterfowl. Today, Federal Duck Stamps are a vital tool for wetland conservation.  Ninety-eight cents out of every dollar generated by the sales of Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or lease wetland habitat for protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System.

Get a Pass!
The America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass covers recreation opportunities on public lands managed by four Department of the Interior agencies – the National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Bureau of Reclamation, and by the Department of Agriculture’s U.S. Forest Service.  One hundred percent of the revenue derived from passes sold at federal recreation sites will directly benefit the selling agency and no less than 80 percent of the revenue will remain at the site where the pass was sold.  The pass applies to those locations that currently have entrance or standard amenity fees.
