Utah Governor Gary Herbert signs House Bill 265 in a special ceremony that included several Ducks Unlimited staff and volunteers, creating the Willard Spur Waterfowl Wildlife Management Area on the north end of the Great Salt Lake.
Ducks Unlimited met with Utah Governor Herbert for a ceremonial signing of House Bill 265 earlier this week, creating the Willard Spur Waterfowl Wildlife Management Area on the north end of the Great Salt Lake. This 14,000 acre waterfowl area will be managed by Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources.
Representative Casey Snider, a DU member, authored the bill and brought a strong collaborative approach with waterfowl groups, airboat associations, government officials, and elected leaders. DU’s Utah volunteer public policy efforts played a critical role in the signing of the bill by writing letters of support and calling the governor when the bill reached his desk.
Ducks Unlimited is thankful to Governor Herbert, Representative Snider, and the Utah Legislature for their dedication to waterfowl habitat.
