As a dedicated local attorney and an active member of Ducks Unlimited, Steve Duckett is an outspoken proponent of conservation initiatives throughout the country. He believes that it is our responsibility as American citizens to be active stewards of the land that we inherited from our forefathers.

Mr. Duckett supports local efforts to conserve and manage wildlife and natural resources in his home area of Northern Virginia. Whether it's raising money for wildlife habitat protection, or helping to maintain the trails in Virginia's numerous state parks, he endorses those who go out of their way to improve and conserve natural areas.

Steve Duckett is proud to sponsor a scholarship that contributes to the awareness and active discussion around nature conservation in the digital age. Younger generations are learning about and taking action on serious issues, such as Earth's natural resource supply, maintaining ecosystems, species diversity, and functions of the environment.
