Migratory Waterfowl Fund

In 1985 the Vermont Legislature, recognizing the importance of wetlands to Vermont's wildlife, created the Migratory Waterfowl Stamp Program. Under this program, hunters wishing to harvest ducks, geese, and other migratory waterfowl are required to purchase a special state migratory waterfowl stamp.

The Migratory Waterfowl Fund was established with the receipts from the sale of the stamps and prints. Interest earned from the Waterfowl Fund is earmarked for wetland acquisition and enhancement projects. So far, monies generated by the fund have:
  • funded 51 projects in 34 locations
  • purchased 4,439 acres of wetland and adjacent uplands
  • protected 921 acres of important habitat through conservation easements
  • enhanced 1,412 acres of habitat
