Under this program, Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) purchases land. DUC restore the property’s wetland and upland habitat, then place a conservation easement on the land title. That’s when the land becomes available for purchase to the agricultural community or the public. It’s time to get the land back to work, while safeguarding its valuable wetland functions and natural ecosystems.
This programs supports the beef industry by narrowing the competition for land to grass growers only. It is our hope that by excluding land conversion options, acquiring acres will become more accessible to beef producers and will support the growth of the beef industry.
