Art Meets Science

  • Jr. Duck Stamp Contest Accepting Entries

    We're seeking young artists and scientists for the annual Jr. Duck Stamp contest!

    This is more than an art contest - it's a dynamic arts and science curriculum that teaches youth about waterfowl, their habitat, and builds a foundation for lifelong wildlife appreciation and conservation. Kids from kindergarten through high school share what they learn about waterfowl conservation through art.

    There are prizes for Oregon winners, and the overall winner for Oregon competes nationally for a cash prize. Read more details about the contest here and see what's happening in Oregon here.

    Entries are due March 15, 2017.  For more information, please contact Jodie Delavan at or (503) 231-6984.
