ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The annual Ducks Unlimited banquet was Thursday night.

The event featured a raffle and an auction with more than $35 thousand worth of merchandise to hand out.

 According to Chairman Stephen Harrell, their main mission is conserving plains and other areas for wildlife in North America.

"We've conserved over 13 million acres. And a significant portion of Ducks unlimited funding that allows them to do that comes from grass roots events such as this, where we have a fundraising event, we have raffles, live auction and all the money goes back to Ducks Unlimited. And it all is used for conservation," said Harrell.

Duck season will start on Nov. 21st but Goose season kicks off on Saturday.
