WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR), ranking member of the Senate Agriculture Committee and member of the Migratory Bird Conservation Commission (MBCC), celebrated the Natural State’s rich outdoor recreation legacy and praised the effectiveness of the Federal Duck Stamp in preserving waterfowl populations in a piece for Ducks Unlimited (DU).
Boozman, who this week embarked on his annual Ag Tour across Arkansas, highlighted the state’s reputation as a world-class duck hunting destination and the MBCC’s work to conserve duck and other waterfowl habitat on millions of acres nationwide.
“As a member of the MBCC, I’m proud to be a voice for the preservation of wetlands and play a leading role to enhance federal efforts to maintain and strengthen waterfowl habitat,” Boozman wrote. “In Arkansas, sales from the Duck Stamp have resulted in expanded access to hundreds of thousands of acres of public lands in the National Wildlife Refuge System.”
