Duck Stamp
Dollars at Work
How can I help?
Buy a Federal Duck Stamp!

The Federal Duck Stamp began in 1934
Duck Stamps are required to hunt migratory birds, however, you do not need to be a hunter to purchase and enjoy them. Considered fine art by many, 98 cents of every dollar used to purchase a duck stamp goes towards acquiring wetland and grassland habitat for birds, endangered and threatened species, and other wildlife.

To buy a Duck Stamp -- head to your local post office, sporting goods store or http://www.duckstamp.com. Seeing the benefits of Duck  Stamps is rewarding -- just brag a pair of binoculars and heard to one of the Midwest Region's many waterfowl production areas or national wildlife refuges. Now that's a cost-effective program for all to enjoy.
The marker is at the fifth stop on the three-mile Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Auto Tour & Trails tour loop. The entrance to the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge | Tempike Auto Tour is located on eastbound Wisconsin Highway 49, about three miles east of the Wisconsin Highway 151 exit, Waupun, Wisconsin 53963.

"Horicon" -- a Mohican word meaning pure, clean water.
