Federal Junior Duck Stamp Art Display Coming to Hagerman



The Junior Duck Stamp Art Exhibit is on tour across the country and will be on display at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge from April 30 – May 7, 2017. In conjunction with this national exhibit, art students from local schools will display works that center on the themes of nature and wildlife. In 2016, over 25,000 students across the United States submitted entries in the federal Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest.  The winning artwork is used as the design for the Junior Duck Stamp.  The revenue from the sale of this stamp funds environmental activities for children through a federal curriculum that combines the arts and sciences to teach environmental conservation.  The program encourages students of all grades to explore the natural world and express and share what they have learned with others.


A display of the winning artwork tours the country annually and will be on display in the Texoma area for the first time at the Hagerman Refuge Visitor Center.  The Junior Duck Stamp Program is an offshoot of the Federal Duck Stamp Program, which helps support the work of the National Wildlife Refuge system, promoting waterfowl conservation through habitat procurement and protection in places like Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge.



Make plans to see the artwork of local students and the national touring exhibit of Junior Duck Stamp winners. Refuge Visitor Center hours are Monday – Friday 7:30 am – 4:00 pm; Saturday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm and Sunday 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
