New Duck Stamp now on sale

The best conservation funding program in history, this year's stamp of the Common Goldeneye is a collector's item and free pass to Federal wildlife refuges that charge fee entries.

This is a single pressure-sensitive (PSA) Common Goldeneye 2013-2014 Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation stamp. The 2013-2014 Federal Duck Stamp features a common goldeneye painted by wildlife artist Robert Steiner of San Francisco. Last fall, a panel of five judges chose Steiner's art to grace the stamp from among 192 paintings at the Federal Duck Stamp Art Contest, held at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. Steiner, whose painting of a Barrow's goldeneye appeared on the 1998-1999 Federal Duck Stamp, has also created numerous state duck stamps. Since 1934, Federal Duck Stamp sales have raised more than $800 million to acquire and protect more than 6 million acres of wetlands habitat on hundreds of national wildlife refuges spread across all 50 states and U.S. territories. A current Federal Duck Stamp is also good for free admission to any refuge that charges an entry fee. More than 560 refuges offer unparalleled outdoor recreational opportunities, including hunting, fishing, bird watching and photography. Made in the USA.
