Bruce Posey Tribute Dinner ~ Saturday April 6, 2019
Ducks Unlimited is hosting a tribute to honor Bruce Posey and his steadfast support of Ducks Unlimited (DU). The objective is to raise major gifts in Bruce's honor for our work with the Preserve Our Prairies Initiative which supports habitat conservation work across the prairies. Bruce has worked hard promoting this noble mission, and this tribute will further Bruce's legacy by conserving waterfowl populations across the continent.
Bruce developed a love for the outdoors at an early age while hunting with his father and went on to become an avid waterfowler. His first DU event was in Billings, Montana, three decades ago, where he was invited to serve as Chair for the event. Under his leadership, the event flourished, and Bruce began to devote himself to DU's mission.
Since 1986, he has served many leadership volunteer positions within Montana DU including Area Chair, District Chair, State Chair, State Campaign Chair and he current serves at the State Council Chair. Moving on to National Board of Directors positions, Bruce served as Regional and then Senior Flyway Vice President from 2005 to 2012 and is a member of the Emeritus Board of Directors.
As an avid hunter Bruce has seen firsthand the importance of habitat conservation and the need to maintain the productivity of the prairies. He knows the Prairie Pothole Region significantly impacts annual waterfowl populations. This is why he wants the conservation focus of this major gift fundraising tribute in his honor to support the Preserve Our Prairies Initiative. To promote the importance of the prairies through this tribute, DU will maintain 30 acres of priority wetlands and associated habitats in northeast Montana. The site will be dedicated in Bruce's honor and reserved for future conservation initiatives. DU will also erect a plague and cairn at this site to recognize Bruce's dedication and support, and all major sponsor supporters of this tribute.
On the evening on April 6th we will host a dinner at Hilands Golf Course in Billings, MT. Dinner will include your choice of ribeye steak or salmon. The evening will include a great social from 5-7 pm, complete with drinks and appetizers. There will be a hosted bar throughout the entire evening. There will be a unique live auction with several very special items, including one of Bruce's own shotguns and some fabulous trips.
