New duck stamp
On sale now good for wildlife refuges you visit requiring entry fees you can bypass if you place the stamp on your dashboard.
The stamp features Black bellied Whistling Ducks in a beautiful way
But more importantly you contribute to duck and bird conservation, over one billion dollars raised since 1936. The first stamp I believed was drawn by Ding Darling who has a refuge named after him in Sanibel Island Florida.
