Ducks Unlimited selects Clemson demonstration site
Clemson’s Waterfowl Demonstration and Research Site was selected by S.C. Ducks Unlimited to highlight Upstate waterfowl projects for the 2006 South Carolina Waterfowl Stamp and Print.
At times, more than 1,300 ducks have used the Clemson site to feed and rest during migrations. The 15-acre site located at Fant’s Grove near Garrison Arena was set up in 1991 with Public Service and Agriculture funds to show farmers how to use fallow fields near water sources to earn off-season income from sportsmen. The project was refurbished in 2002 and has spawned more than half dozen private projects in the area.
Here, Spartanburg wildlife artist Rodney Huckaby scouts the landscape for the image he will use on the Ducks Unlimited prints to raise money for wetlands and waterfowl conservation projects.
