This years's event is bigger than ever. Included in this year's event is 2018 Alabama Waterfowl Stamp art contest, which opens December 11, 2017. The winning artwork will be featured as the design of the 2019-20 Alabama Waterfowl Stamp. The Alabama stamp is required for all licensed hunters when hunting migratory waterfowl in the state. Revenue from the sale of the stamp is used to purchase, establish or improve migratory waterfowl habitat.
The 2018 contest will take place in conjunction with the annual “Fins, Feathers and Flowers” event here at Lakepoint Resort State Park.
All eligible entries will be on display at Lakepoint State Park beginning Friday, February 16. Three judges from the fields of art, ornithology and wildlife conservation will select the winning waterfowl art the following day at 1 p.m. The media and public are invited to attend. See below for more infomation on the Waterfowl Stamp Contest.

As part of this event the Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge will host an Open Gates Day for the public on Saturday, February 17th from 6 am - 5 pm. This is in conjunction with the Fins, Feathers and Flowers event and will not conflict with other event activities in any way. It's just another way of providing guests more time to tour the Refuge.
