Historic Sites of Manitoba: Simmons Conservation Monument (Nina Lake, Municipality of West Interlake)

A monument along Provincial Trunk Highway 68, near Nina Lake in the Municipality of West Interlake, was erected in 1970 by Ducks Unlimited Canada to commemorate Ernest P. Simmons Sr. of Olathe, Kansas. A nearby conservation project was funded by friends of Simmons from the Western Missouri Chapter of Ducks Unlimited Incorporated. Construction of the project was supported by the Rural Municipality of Siglunes and Adolf Freeman, Frank Johnson, Gordon Kernested, Gisli Sigfusson, and John Sigurdson of Oakview, and Simundur Hallson of Vogar.
