  5. I’m Russ Donnelly, the Regional Director for Eastern Canada for Delta Waterfowl. I work from a home office in Mississauga ON and manage the relationships with all of our local chapters in Ontario and Eastern Canada. We have been growing quite a bit lately, with new chapters added in Kingston. Petawawa / Pembroke, and Orangeville ON, as well as Springfield NB and Yarmouth NS. We currently don’t have a chapter in the Niagara Region – and I would certainly like to change that! All I need is a handful of volunteers that are committed to ensuring the future of waterfowl, and waterfowl hunting.
  6. If you have family or hunting buddies in the Orangeville area, let them know about our upcoming dinner! Since 1911 Delta Waterfowl has worked to ensure the future of waterfowl and waterfowl hunting. Our research team carries out extensive science based research projects, primarily in the Prairie Pothole Region (SK, MB, ND, SD), and have developed proven tools to "grow more ducks" - wetland and grassland conservation efforts, the installation and maintenance of nesting structures (hen houses, wood duck boxes) and the use of predator management have helped Delta researchers see the nest succes

  11. Delta Waterfowl has a fantastic youth hunt program - the average age of a waterfowler in Canada is 56 - we need as many youth engaged in our sport as we can get!

Delta Waterfowl is a membership funded organization established in 1911 and headquartered in Winnipeg, that has a simple mandate – to preserve our hunting heritage and to ensure the future of waterfowl and waterfowl hunting. There are three things that sets Delta apart, A) we are a hunting and conservation / research organization the money raised in Canada stays in Canada and C) our local chapters retain 25% of the net proceed
  15. I’m Russ Donnelly, the Regional Director for Ontario & Eastern Canada for Delta Waterfowl – I am based in Mississauga. We have 15 chapters in Ontario, but none down in the Niagara area (the closest would be over in Norfolk / Long Point). Delta Waterfowl is a membership funded organization (we do receive small research grants for our biological work, but majority of our operating budget comes from our memberships and fundraising events), established in 1911, that has a simple mandate – to ensure the future of waterfowl and waterfowl hunting. We have an extensive research and conservation
