2014 NCDU National Annual Awards

Just as there are myriad ways local chapters raise funds in their communities to benefit Ducks Unlimited’s conservation mission, there are also a number of national recognition programs for chapters and events that perform at the highest levels on a calendar year basis.  See the National Awards page for a description of each award.

In 2014, North Carolina Ducks Unlimited finished 8th in the nation!
