Duckett Local Conservation Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

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 our responsibility as American citizens is to be active stewards of the land we inherited from our forebears.

Mr. Duckett supports local efforts to conserve and manage wildlife and natural resources in his home area of Northern Virginia. Whether 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 contributing 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 environmental functions. We have seen that this generation is focused on making actual changes and implementing policies to protect future generations.
