Minnesota State Sen. Pat Pariseau honored for service to DU

ST. PAUL, April 19, 2010 - Minnesota State Sen. Pat Pariseau was recognized recently by Ducks Unlimited and Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty for her leadership in founding the DU Capitol Chapter, as well as her 19 years as the volunteer area chair of the chapter. With many of Pariseau's legislative colleagues in attendance, Lt. Gov. Carol Molnau and DU Minnesota State Chair Lee Ness presented her with framed letters from Gov. Tim Pawlenty and DU President John Pope. Pariseau is retiring after 21 years of service as a state senator.

Pope congratulated Pariseau for the good will and recognition the DU committee has among state legislators and DU's partners. "As an avid outdoors person with deep roots in farming and with a deep-seated conservation ethic, you set out to found the Capitol Chapter and what a job you have done," he said. "Yours is an extraordinary record of stewardship of the outdoors, not only to your home state and its citizens, but to our conservation mission."

Today, the Capitol Chapter boasts 161 members and seven Bronze Sponsors and has raised more than $143,000 for DU's mission.

Pope says Pariseau has been a key player in the creation of the constitutional amendment to protect Minnesotans' right to hunt and fish, advancements in personal protection laws and firearm safety, and a vast array of natural resources legislation.

Pariseau says her involvement in DU came from her interest in maintaining the rights and options for citizens, especially youth, to enjoy outdoor sports, including the hunting of legitimate game. "Ducks Unlimited seemed an obvious choice due to its efforts to conserve habitat and sustain waterfowl populations for future generations," she said. "If you are interested in helping to further this great cause, the easiest way to get involved is to attend your local DU chapter events."

"Your passionate advocacy for conservation and the outdoors is a prime example of your commitment and your ability to achieve results," Pawlenty wrote, thanking her on behalf of the state of Minnesota for her dedicated service in the Minnesota Senate.

Ducks Unlimited is the world's largest non-profit organization dedicated to conserving North America's continually disappearing waterfowl habitats. Established in 1937, Ducks Unlimited has conserved more than 12 million acres thanks to contributions from more than a million supporters across the continent. Guided by science and dedicated to program eff .....
