In 1991, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission established the Nebraska Waterfowl Stamp and commissioned Neal R. Anderson, a Nebraska native, to create the first stamp print. He also has designed a stamp each year from 1992 to 1995. The 1995 Nebraska Waterfowl Stamp Print depicts a pair of wood ducks in striking detail (see photo). Funds from the sale of the 1995 Stamp will be used to benefit the Nebraska wildlife Habitat Fund.

Neal Anderson has provided illustrations for several wildlife magazines including Nebraska land, and he has designed Sponsor Prints for Ducks Unlimited in Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, and North Dakota. He was a wimmer of the Federal Duck Stamp competition in 1989 and 1994 (see NBR 62 (2): 96. 1994). Over 36 of his paintings have been produced in limited-edition prints, and his work is found in private and corporate collections throughout the united States and Canada.
