EXHIBIT: The History, Use, and Art of Waterfowl Decoys 

On Exhibit: January 12 – April 28

Early hunters and gatherers first discovered that waterfowl were more likely to land in areas where other birds were. Through this, the waterfowl decoy was born. This exhibit touches on the history of using decoys to hunt and features working decoys, artistic decoys, and contemporary, regionally-built decoys.

Exhibit Opening: Thursday, January 12, 5:30 – 7 pm
