Ducks Unlimited conserves, restores, and manages wetlands and associated habitats for North America's waterfowl. These habitats also benefit other wildlife and people.

DU got its start in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when North America’s drought-plagued waterfowl populations had plunged to unprecedented lows. Determined not to sit idly by as the continent’s waterfowl dwindled beyond recovery, a small group of sportsmen joined together to form an organization that became known as Ducks Unlimited.

Greater Grand Rapids Ducks Unlimited carries on this tradition with a small group of Michigan Sportmen and Sportswomen who volunteer their time and effort to raise funds to protect Michigan's waterfowl.

Ducks Unlimited partnered with Ottawa County Parks in 2011 to purchase a 119-acre tract of land containing a mix of emergent, forested and open-water wetlands. Located near the rapidly expanding western edge of Grand Rapids, this tract was in immediate danger of urban development.
