More on the Duck Stamp
The 2014-2015 stamp features a pair of canvasbacks painted by wildlife artist Adam Grimm of Burbank, South Dakota. A new Junior Duck Stamp was also made available for the first time at the event, and its artist was Si Youn Kim, 16, of Tenafly, New Jersey. The Junior Stamp features a king eider.
A group of waterfowl hunters, birders, stamp collectors, conservationists and outdoor enthusiasts were on hand to be the first to purchase one, and to show their support for a great cause.

A total of 98 percent of the proceeds from the duck stamp, which costs $15, go to the Migratory Bird Conservation Fund, which helps support wetland acquisition for the National Wildlife Refuge System.
