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

A monument in the Rural Municipality of Minto-Odanah was erected to commemorate a wetland conservation project completed in 1996 by Ducks Unlimited Canada with the cooperation of local landowners, the Rural Municipality of Odanah, and the Province of Manitoba. Funding for the project was provided in memory of Granvel O. “Granny” Salmon (1925-1994), a sportsman and conservationist from Lafayette, Louisiana, by the G. O. Salmon Project Committee chaired by J. O. Richard. Donors included Ron and Jackie Bartels, Lorretta Beech, Mark Booth, Ruel and Virginia Gober, Bill Hogan, Ted and Cecilia Hoyt, Mike and Vicki Jeansonne, J. L. Mayeux, Gary Salmon, Charles R. Sonnier, and Matthew G. Stuller.
