From the Desk of the President
The DEC is conducting research on waterfowl, and asking for assistance from hunters. Here is the e-mail I recieved and all the the information you will need if you are interested in helping:
Please assist DEC spread the word that we are collecting mallard and black duck carcasses from hunters. This is essential to research we are conducting to improve management in the Adirondack region. Please post the attached sign and tell your members. We are relying on the hunting community to make this research possible. Thank you!

DEC is asking hunters that harvest Mallards and American Black Ducks within the Adirondack Park to provide the carcasses to assist in a study of the diet of these two waterfowl species.
