2021 Junior Duck Stamp Challenge

Maine Audubon is collaborating with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the 27th annual Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program. Educators can download a free dynamic, multidisciplinary curriculum that teaches wetland and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. The program encourages students to explore their natural world, invites them to investigate biology and wildlife management principles and challenges them to express and share what they have learned with others.

Maine Audubon is presenting special free online programs to get you and your students excited about this year’s program. Join Maine Audubon on Zoom for these special events:

  • January 14 for information on the curriculum and background information on waterfowl
  • January 28 on drawing tips and techniques.

Educators, mentors or parents may register below to attend the free information and training sessions via Zoom or download the curriculum and do it on their own with students. Deadline to submit artwork is March 1, 2021 for Maine residents.
