Remington Outdoor Foundation - DU donation



The Remington Outdoor Foundation (ROF) is the philanthropic arm of Remington Arms Company and they have just donated $250,000 to Ducks Unlimited. Not only that, the ROF will make two additional payments to DU that will qualify for 'match' grants that will total $3 million dollars. The money will go towards DU's Rescue The Duck Factory campaign that was launched in 2008 to save high priority waterfowl breeding wetlands in the Prairie Pothole Region of North and South Dakotas. Waterfowlers in S.C. need to recognize that a fair amount of migratory waterfowl that visit the Palmetto State come from the central flyway nesting grounds. ROF president Jim Moore said, "Conserving wild places is an integral part of our mission to encourage more people to enjoy the outdoors." ROF also has a brand new website, www.OutdoorRoadMap.com, that aims to become the flagship source for online information regarding hunting and conservation. That is, if they can keep up with MidlandsOutdoors!!
