For the first time ever, the original artwork for the California State Duck Stamps will be on display. These collectible stamps, required for hunting waterfowl in California, raise money to preserve wetlands and other critical habitat for ducks and geese in the state. Since California started the nation’s first state duck stamp program in 1971, it has generated more than $22 million to help our water birds. Thirty-seven original paintings, in various media, representing each duck stamp since the program began in 1971 will be on display. From wood ducks to wigeons, mallards to pintails, the exquisite duck stamps highlight many of California’s migratory birds.

This exhibit is in partnership with the California Department of Fish and Game.
