The 2012 event was a huge success. So successful that the Darke County DU chapter was one of two chapters ever in Ohio to get the Gold Presidential Award. The local chapter has already been awarded the Bronze DU Presidential Citation Award (2010) as well as the Silver DU Presidential Citation Award (2011) and now the Gold DU Presidential Citation Award (2012). Your Darke County Ducks Unlimited chapter would Like to THANK everyone for their support over the years.

Ducks Unlimited is the world's leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation. Ducks Unlimited conserves, restores, and manages wetlands and associated habitats for North America's waterfowl. These habitats also benefit other wildlife and people. Ducks Unlimited got its start in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when North America’s drought-plagued waterfowl populations had plunged to unprecedented lows. Determined not to sit idly by as the continent’s waterfowl dwindled beyond recovery, a small group of sportsmen joined together to form an organization that became known as Ducks Unlimited. Our mission: habitat conservation.
