SUNY Cobleskill Ducks Unlimited Chapter Attends State Convention

Six students of the SUNY Cobleskill Student Chapter of Ducks Unlimited attended the 2017 New York State Ducks Unlimited Convention in Geneva, New York on March 18-19.

The students had the opportunity to meet and interact with professionals from various organizations, including the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Ducks Unlimited, and graduate students from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry.

On Saturday, the students attended presentations by agency officials about waterfowl habitat conservation efforts and ongoing research in the field throughout New York. After the presentations, the group visited the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge to learn about ongoing research projects on American Black Duck (Anasrubripes) before the evening’s formal banquet event. 

The SUNY Cobleskill Student Chapter of Ducks Unlimited is the largest and longest-running student chapter in New York State. It promotes the conservation of waterfowl and their habitats through education, research and outreach. It recognizes that ducks, geese, and swans are a vital part of the human environment, ecologically, economically and recreationally.
