Historic Sites of Manitoba: Grant Conservation Monument (RM of Minto-Odanah)

A monument in the Rural Municipality of Minto-Odanah was unveiled by Ducks Unlimited Canada on 8 July 2016 to commemorate 30 years of service by employee Bob Grant. He grew up in the St. James area of Winnipeg, later graduating with a Fish and Wildlife diploma from Lethbridge Community College (1979). He worked for Alberta Fish & Wildlife then returned to Manitoba in 1980 where he worked for the Department of Natural Resources. He joined Ducks Unlimited in 1985, working at its offices in Dauphin (1989-1992), Minnedosa (1992-1996), and Brandon (1996-2014). Grant retired as Manager of Provincial Operations in 2014.
