The backpacks include various field guides, magnifying glasses, aquatic invertebrate activities and binoculars. We are also working on developing additional materials for loan...stay tuned.

The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program is a dynamic art- and science-based curriculum that teaches wetland and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. The program encourages students to explore their natural world, invites them to investigate biology and wildlife management principles and challenges them to express and share what they have learned with others. In addition, 1st-3rd place national winners in both the art and a conservation message receive scholarship money. The deadline for North Dakota entries is March 15, 2017.
