Students announce 2nd Annual Ducks Unlimited Banquet

October 11, 2012

Oct. 18 will mark the date for the second annual UW-River Falls Ducks Unlimited banquet, a student and community supported event in celebration of wetlands conservation. The festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will take place at the American Legion located at 701 North Main Street.

“We are a college student organization that is full of members who care about wildlife conservation and the outdoors,” said chairman and founder of the UWRF Ducks Unlimited Chapter, Justin Morrisey.

Since the banquet last year, student and community support contributed more than $3,000 to project funding for wetlands habitat and wildlife conservation. Morrissey intends to increase that goal and aims to raise $6,500 at this year’s event.

Banquet event tickets are $15 for students and $25 for adults. Fees include dinner, event festivities, and a 1-year membership to Ducks Unlimited. More information can be found and tickets can be purchased at ducks.org.
