RALEIGH, NC --(Ammoland.com)- If you have a passion for wetlands and waterfowl, a love of the natural world and all its wonders, then Ducks Unlimited and partners invite you to join them in celebrating the lasting legacy for waterfowl and wetlands conservation accomplished through North Carolina’s Sound CARE Initiative.

“Seven years ago we embarked on a journey to raise $27 million to conserve 70,000 acres in North Carolina and on the breeding grounds important to our state,” Lloyd Goode, past NC DU state chairman and current DU regional vice president, said.

“The Sound CARE Initiative was the first of its kind for Ducks Unlimited – a comprehensive state campaign that included all sources of revenue raised in the state for waterfowl and wetlands conservation.”

Through Sound CARE, Ducks Unlimited and partners like the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the North American Wetlands Conservation Council improved habitat on many public lands in the state, including Goose Creek Game Land (Pamlico County), Caswell GL (Caswell County), Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge (Hyde County), Gull Rock GL (Hyde County), Suggs Mill Pond GL (Bladen County) and Pocosin Lakes NWR (Washington County). The Sound CARE initiative also supported important habitat conservation efforts on the breeding grounds most important to waterfowl that migrate to North Carolina.

The Sound CARE celebration event will be held Friday, March 4, at 6:30 p.m. The event venue is the Pavilions at the Angus Barn, 9410 Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh, N.C. Tickets can be purchased online www.ducks.org/NCDU-Sound-CARE. Rooms are blocked at a group rate for those who want to spend the evening in Raleigh at the Embassy Suites – Raleigh-Durham Airport / Brier Creek 1-919-572-2200. You may also contact Larry Wilkins – lwilkins@ducks.org or 252-425-1842 – for tickets or more information
