The new book about waterfowl hunting and wetland conservation in Missouri is now available for purchase at: http://mochf.org/2014/04/book-waterfowl-hunting-and-wetlands-conservation-in-missouri/ The following is from the promotional flyer: Discover the unique history of the “Missouri Model” of wetland and waterfowl management in this large format and richly illustrated new book. The success of Missouri’s waterfowl and wetland conservation is not an accident. Careful planning, skillful execution of welldesigned strategies, public and private partnerships, strong citizen support, and dedicated funding have all led to the quality wetland habitats and migratory bird populations that we enjoy today. A new book, Waterfowl Hunting and Wetland Conservation in Missouri: A Model of Collaboration, chronicles and celebrates this success. Sponsors, anchored by Bass Pro Shops, the Missouri Department of Conservation, Ducks Unlimited, the Conservation Federation of Missouri, the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation, and private citizens, have covered all production costs. The book’s authors, many of them former waterfowl biologists and wetland managers, have donated their services to produce this new book. The book is edited by Kenneth M. Babcock and W. Alan Wentz. Dale Hall, CEO of Ducks Unlimited, and Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops, have each written a foreword for the book. The dust jacket artwork is from the Charles W. Schwartz collection, the State Historical Society of Missouri. Over three hundred images, some never before published, will be showcased in this hard copy book. This is a “must have” book for all serious migratory bird hunters, and all net proceeds from sales of the book will be dedicated to wetland and waterfowl conservation that benefits Missouri.
