The Eastern Suffolk chapter of Ducks Unlimited has been recognized as one of the national organization’s “President’s Top 100.” The designation is reserved for chapters that have excelled in fundraising over the past year. The Eastern Suffolk chapter beat out more than 2,700 Ducks Unlimited chapters nationwide to earn the recognition.
“These fundraising events are the backbone of Ducks Unlimited’s habitat conservation efforts, and the volunteers who make up these chapters are the grassroots force making a difference for North American waterfowl populations,” said Ducks Unlimited President John Newman. “It takes a great deal of effort to crack the Top 100, and these chapters deserve to be congratulated from every person who enjoys the outdoors.”
Ducks Unlimited, established in 1937, is the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving North America’s waterfowl habitats. The organization has worked to conserve more than 13 million acres since its inception.
