KECA is proud to announce the 1st Annual Wapiti Waddle Duck Race! On May 29th, our ducks will take a swim in Bennett’s Branch in the village of Benezette and race to the finish line where someone will be the top finisher and receive a $1000 cash prize! The ducks will drop from the foot bridge crossing Trout Run and float towards the Bennett’s Branch (behind the Benezett Store). They will then cross the finish line just past the Station Road Bridge. The first 3 finishers will win $1000, $500, and $250 respectively and the very last duck to cross the finish line will win $50 too! We will also have lots of other prizes to be drawn the day of the event. Festival & Chicken BBQ to follow race at the Elk Country Visitor Center.
Winner need not be present to win. All Online Sales will end Thursday May 27th at 7PM. Ducks can also be adopted (purchased) through the Elk Country Visitor Center until Saturday May 29th (Day of the event). All proceeds will benefit KECA’s Conservation Education and Habitat Enhancement programs in Elk Country.
