About the N.C. Waterfowl Conservation Stamp and Print Program
The N.C. Waterfowl Conservation Stamp and Print program, established in 1983 by the Commission, generates revenue for waterfowl conservation in the state, including acquiring and improving habitat. Proceeds from the sale of stamps and prints are designated for the Commission’s Waterfowl Fund.
The money is used to help North Carolina meet its financial obligations in implementing the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, the international agreement helping restore waterfowl populations throughout the continent. In addition, funds have been used to support waterfowl research and to buy equipment used to manage wetlands.
About the Artist – Adam Grimm
South Dakota-based artist Adam Grimm’s painting was selected from a diverse collection of entries submitted by 26 artists from over 20 states. Mr. Grimm has won three state duck stamp competitions this year and impressed the five-judge panel with his tundra swan in flight. “It’s a tremendous honor to win this competition,” said Grimm. “I actually harvested my first tundra swan this year. I was just so taken by its beauty that I knew I wanted to capture something that represented that moment.”
