Canvasbacks on federal duck stamp

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The new 2014-2015 federal duck stamp is now available. The stamps, which cost $15, are valid through June 30, 2015. Purchased by millions of waterfowl hunters, wildlife enthusiasts and collectors every year, duck stamps help raise money to purchase and protect wetlands for ducks, geese and other wildlife species.

Adam Grimm's two canvasbacks adorn this year's duck stamp.

“Duck stamps are one of the traditional ways hunters and others give back to conservation,” said DU CEO Dale Hall. “We encourage everyone, whether they hunt waterfowl or not, to buy a duck stamp to help conserve our precious wetland resources. Many duck hunters even 'double up' their contributions to this conservation effort by buying two stamps every year.”

This year's federal duck stamp artwork is an oil painting of a pair of canvasbacks by Adam Grimm of Burbank, S.D. Grimm is a repeat winner; his art was also represented on the 2000-2001 federal duck stamp.
