Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot recently recognized Salisbury University’s Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art for its ongoing commitment to advancing the understanding of wildfowl art and its connection with nature since the museum’s founding in 1976.
He praised the Ward as an example of the public and private sectors working together for the common good. The comptroller, in turn, was praised for his commitment to the Shore and his frequent visits.
