Ducks Unlimited Chapter

Ducks Unlimited seeks Lebanon chapter
Lebanon Daily News

Jeremy Mercer sees wetlands that have been restored by Ducks Unlimited every day. The local waterfowl management area is full of plaques recognizing the partnership of Ducks Unlimited and other conservation delivery organizations. As far as he can tell, there's only one thing missing - a local DU chapter.

"There are more than 17 thousand members in Pennsylvania, plenty of those are local. It's time for Lebanon to have a chapter of their own," Mercer, a Ducks Unlimited regional director, said in a news release.

Volunteers in Pennsylvania raised more than half a million dollars for wetland conservation in 2009 alone, the release states. The funds benefit waterfowl habitat across the continent but also local wetlands such as Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area near Kleinfeltersville.

DU teams with corporations and governmental partners as well as nongovernmental organizations, landowners and private citizens to restore and manage areas that have been damaged and to prevent further degradation of existing wetlands, the release states. DU is also active in working with others to recommend government policies that will positively influence wetlands and the environment. DU generates $200 million in revenues each year, more than 80 percent of which goes directly towards habitat conservation.

Mercer encouraged those interested in a Lebanon County chapter to call him at 575-2700 or e-mail him at [email protected].
