$170.00 Unframed Print with Stamps

The 1999-2000 design is by artist Richard Clifton, designer of numerous state waterfowl stamps. The scene features a pair of Redheads at Barnegat Bay. This is the third design to feature an historic boat -- the Garvey. New Jersey duck stamps are required for hunting waterfowl in the state, but the beautiful designs are sought after by stamp and print collectors nationwide. Since 1984, proceeds from the sale of New Jersey waterfowl stamps and artist-signed limited edition prints have raised more than $3.5 million for the acquisition, protection and improvement of waterfowl habitat and associated wetlands. To date, more than 11,000 acres have been purchased and/or donated to the program. Full-color print includes a resident and non-resident stamp. Comes hand-signed and numbered -- a piece to display with pride

There are now two attractive Conserve Wildlife license plates to choose from -- the original colorful reproduction of New Jersey’s threatened red-headed woodpecker and a new design featuring a magnificent bald eagle in flight. Proceeds are used to restore endangered wildlife populations, protect sensitive and declining wildlife species and expand wildlife recreational opportunities through the development of statewide wildlife viewing areas. Conserve Wildlife license plates are available at all Division of Motor Vehicle agencies (regardless of when a current registration expires) or at any New Jersey automobile dealer when purchasing or leasing a car. Prices are as follows: $50 for a standard wildlife plate; $150 for a personalized wildlife plate; and $65 for the re-manufacturing of one’s own existing personalized or courtesy plate with five characters or less.
