Dave's Metal Designs
Ducks Unlimited is the world's leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation.
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.
Friends of Camano Island Parks provides volunteer support and conducts fund raising events to help promote preservation and protection of the wildlife, and the scenic and recreational resources of State, County Parks and *DNR lands located on Camano Island.

Nice Nests by Patrick Hannigan
Nice Nests create functional breeding habitat for dozens of species of cavity-nesting birds, ranging from chickadees to bluebirds, kestrels to saw-whet owls. Each Nice Nest is hand-crafted from salvaged scrap wood and funky found hardware. All Nice Nests open easily for convenient clean-out and feature proper hole sizes and dimensions for the target species. Nice Nests also offers installation, habitat assessment and consultation services. I work with private landowners, land conservation organizations and public agencies to create, enhance and preserve critical breeding habitat for native cavity-nesting birds.
Northwest Swan Conservation Association
The Trumpeter Swan is North America's largest waterfowl and one of its rarest native birds. To many people, it is the embodiment of grace, beauty, and unspoiled wildness. It is also an inspiring reminder that we can save some species that have been reduced to near extinction. The Northwest Swan Conservation Association is a means for those who cherish these swans to work together and support their continued conservation and restoration.
