The Alabama Waterfowl Association (AWA) in their 29th year of banding and releasing
mallards in their Mallard Restoration Project. Banding and releasing over 152,000 ducks
during this time. AWA has had duck bands reported being harvested in 22 different states 
and 3 Providences of Canada.
This program has helped Jackson County earn the top waterfowl county in Alabama.
Also help our state get recognized as 12th in the USA in number of waterfowl harvested
per hunter. This creates economic benefits to our beautiful county and State.
This year AWA is banding and releasing 1700 mallards in honor of Mr. Seth Thomas Barkley,
a 21 year old Marshall County Waterfowler that hunts at Farm 101 a waterfowl habitat project
under the Wetland Reserve Program with the USDA, in Jackson County. Seth was killed in a
tragic car accident in March of 2017 on 431 near Albertville, Alabama when the jeep he
was driving hydro planed turned over in a creek and he drowned. 

Seth’s dad Mr. Wayne Barkley, said “Seth was so interested in waterfowl hunting and was a model young man, that loved not only hunting ducks, but working for waterfowl habitat and conservation”. In lieu of flower Seth’s family and friends donated money to help raise, band and release 1,700 mallard to carry on Seth’s legacy and interest that Seth so enjoyed.
