Orangeville On Delta Waterfowl

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 success of ducks go from 5-10% up to 45-65%. We are putting more incremental birds into flight every year! Higher nest success in the PPR means more ducks in all the flyways.

Delta is also an advocate for the hunting community locally, provincially, and federally. Our advocacy work on behalf of the hunting community on the Long Gun Registry, for example, is cited by the government as a key factor in its abolishment.

Delta Waterfowl is a grassroots organization - we are funded by our members and by our local fundraising events, like our Orangeville Dinner. Key to the local events is the fact that the local chapter retains 25% of the net profits to be re-invested locally on projects like nesting structures, youth hunts, habitat conservation, etc.

You can see the great work our Chapters in Ontario do on our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/DeltaWaterfowlEasternCanada

At our upcoming Orangeville Dinner, you will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Frank Rohwer, the President of the Delta Waterfowl Foundation, learn about Delta’s research and the future for our organization, and ask him questions about waterfowl and waterfowl hunting.
