California voters, including many Ducks Unlimited supporters, will head to the polls this November tasked with improving California’s water for wetlands future.
Proposition 3 – the Water Infrastructure and Watershed Conservation Bond Initiative – authorizes $8.877 billion in general obligation bonds for wetlands and waterfowl, water infrastructure, groundwater supplies and storage, dam repairs, watershed and fisheries improvements, habitat restoration, and waterfowl education.
California has lost 95 percent of its historic wetlands and Prop. 3 is a step in the right direction for our waterfowl and the hundreds of species thriving and surviving in wetlands.
Prop. 3 was written in collaboration with hundreds of water groups, farmers and ranchers, conservation and environmental organizations, business, and labor and environmental justice organizations. Prop 3 also provides huge public benefits, including funding to provide safe drinking water to disadvantaged communities and people.

Ducks Unlimited is proud of the bipartisan legislative and congressional support for this proposition.
