So I speak of the clubs as "conservation," "outdoor," or ",wildlife" clubs, which they truly are. Back in 1935, we had a few local wildlife clubs scaf~tered throughout North Dakota. Things were des- perate. Our migratory waterfowl were geeing less and less. our upland game blrds were dirntnish- ing fast and fishing was almost an unknown sport, with almost all of our lakes dried up. The conser- vationis~ became alarmed and de- cided that something had to be done. As a result, a state meeting of conservationists ~ras called ~t Carrington, and from this mee~ng grew ~he Nor~ Dakota WildU~e Association. (~he name was la~er ohanged to NOah l:~kota Wild- life FederatiOn tO coincide with t~e frame, Na~on~l Wildlife Federa- tion.) North Dakota realized we had to unite our conserv~ion clu~ and soon ~he nation's conserva- tionists t ae advantage of unit- ing for the purpose of gebtlng leg- islation through congress and ac= compHshing o~her wildlife conser- vation aims. Carring on officers were elected and a constitution set up. The members were now ready to get o work, One of the first stafe calls was sen~ out because so many of our duck ponds were drying up and young ducks were dying by the thousands. Many of us can well recall being out in the shallow water in rmmy pl~fces gathering up ~he tiny du~ks and planting them in rivers throughout the state, Here we planted them in the James and Sheyenne rivers. Of course, we cguld not salve ,~ern all, and thousands were left to die in ~he dried up ponds---ncve~heless, many were saved which would at~evwise have died. Next, there had to be some way to save some of the run-off waters in ~he spring, giving the ducks a place to re t and raise their young. W~th this purpose in mind, the Nort~ l~kota W~dlife l~n:ler- aliGn started a dam-building pro- gram end had much o do in a~- op our wildlife resources, We have ing back, we had to find a way to keep our eyes and ears open, to ge4 fish for planting in these or we could soon lose our hunt- lakes and streams. The federation ing and fishing, spent mueh time and money in The shelterbelt tree-plan ir~g helping promote a federal fish program was pioneered by the hatchery at Valley City. This is North Dakota Wildlife Federation. now a very fine hatchery, and I When the Joint Forestry Commit- believe over 90 per cer~t of the @,sh graptm of shelterbelts in different parts of this stmte were presented o ~he Joint Conm~ittee. The mc~t striking, I .b~lieve, were pictures of a farm that previously had had no ,trees at all. The second picture showed the farm with a shelter- belt of ~rees thirty to forty feet high. Among these trees were three children sitting at a table having. a picnic, enjoying the shade and the outdoors. No doubt their en- Joyment was augmented by the songs of ~e birds in the trees overhead. Perhaps they ~icked a few wildflowers before they left for home. Surely these shelter- be~ts have helped to make thIs state a better and more enjoy~le place to live in, in more ways than one. In the past ~ew years, the North Dal~ta Wildlife Federation has had at least one man on every major ~ of the National Wfldilfe FedersJtion's national meet- hint. The Missouri River Diversion been endorsed twice by the National Wildlife Federation and every year bY d~he North Dakota ~ederation. Through the Federa- lion's work on the diversion, many statos have become inter~ and offered o give help on t2~ls great project if and ~hen we need it. This pro[cot ~h~t for years seem- ed a dream has now come into reality. The Federathon is working hard on the reclanmtlon program, and because of the Federation, the writer of blfls article is now presi- dent of the North Dakota Reclama- tion Aasociation. It was for the Federation that we ~orked on the formation of a reclamation associ- ation, Our water resources are so closely related o wildlife that these %wo organizations are almost as one. Both are fighting for our .natural resources and their develop- men~. Through the education~l program of .the Federation, many of its speakers ~ave given talks and dis- tributed books to the school child- ren to teach ~hem more about our wildlife and why we must conserve it. They always have been willing to give talks at any kind of meet- ing ~here people ir~erested in wild- life axe gathered. A few of these are organizations of young people, ~uoh ~ 4-H Clubs, Boy Scot~s, Junior Game Wardens and others. This can only ~be done by a strong federa~on of conserv~ionlsts. It's all up to us, because there is strength only in unity. The writer could go on for hours telling things tha~ ~he State Wild- life Federation and National Wild- life Federation h~Ne done.
