Betty Schmidt and  John's son Willie

Clair, Betty, Sue, Rita & Ed Holmberg

Ducks Unlimited held a tribute/fundraiser in Denver May 5&6 honoring John Schmidt for his work as regional director in preserving America's wetlands.  Weekend included a Friday evening dinner in Denver led by past president Pete Coors and a dedication of a plaque May 6 naming Area 8 at Jackson Lake State Park in honor of John, followed by lunch at Drakeland Farms.  
In John's 16 years with Ducks Unlimited he raised millions of dollars for conservation projects. 

Also worthy of note,  Jackson Lake State Park is just one of many state parks that Ed Holmberg designed/built projects as landscape architect during his career with Colorado Parks & Wildlife.
