Volunteering with East Cooper Ducks Unlimited
East Cooper Chapter of Ducks Unlimited was recognized as the 2018 Top Net Fundraising Chapter in South Carolina for the 17th time in the past 18 years at the SCDU State Convention held at Hickory Knob State Park last weekend. Ducks Unlimited, Inc. also announced that East Cooper DU had attained the prestigious President’s Roll of Honor status for the 5th year in a row by raising over $250,000 net dollars for wetlands habitat in calendar year 2018. East Cooper Chapter’s SEWE Oyster Roast as the #1 net fundraising event and the Chapter’s Shuckin’ on the Yorktown as the #4 net fundraising event in the state for 2018. The Top Chapter Award was earned by East Cooper by raising $384,823 net for 2018. That amount equates to over 1500 acres of wetland and associated habitat conserved here in South Carolina and in the breeding areas to the north. Since its inception SCDU has conserved more than 204,000 acres in South Carolina and Ducks Unlimited has conserved 14 million acres since DU was founded in 1937. The ECDU committee is serious about the DU mission of conservation. And we know the money we raise is going straight to important DU projects, with over 83 cents of every dollar raised going back into the ground. We couldn’t have achieved these levels without the work of our committee and all our supporters, sponsors, and conservation partners.
We will be in touch with your shortly.
