J. N. "Ding" Darling was a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist who advocated for the conservation of our Nation's natural resources. He inaugurated the Federal Duck Stamp Program and drew the first stamp. He was founder of the National Wildlife Federation and architect of the Cooperative Wildlife Refuge System. In 1934, as Chief of the Bureau of Biological Survey, predecessor of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, he proposed a plan to establish the Nation's first wildlife research center. In 1936, by executive Order No. 7514, that vision became a reality with the creation of Patuxent Research Refuge.

Along this loop trail, you will have an opportunity to view the National Wildlife Federation's Hall of Fame Inductees.
