This major exhibition explores Federal Duck Stamps, the popular revenue stamps that have been issued annually since 1934, and whose profits are used to acquire and preserve the nation's waterfowl habitats. Stamps are rotated periodically for conservation purposes.

The exhibition currently includes more than 50 artifacts from the collection of Jeanette Cantrell Rudy of Nashville, Tennessee; 3 videos; an array of rare duck stamps; and Rudy's customized Duck Stamp album featuring art by Joe Hautman.
