FARMINGTON — A big chunk of the wetlands habitat at Farmington Bay now stands as a living memorial to a Utah outdoorsman and born storyteller.

Ducks Unlimited and the Department of Wildlife Services opened the Doug Miller Unit Wednesday. The 370 acres of marshland includes new dikes and other structures that have already helped increase the population of waterfowl.

It's exactly the sort of conservation the former KSL outdoorsman championed throughout his career on television and his life.

"The sounds of the marsh got his blood pumping and made him smile as he prepared for his beautiful day in the mud," Karen Coleman, Miller's daughter, said in a press conference.

Miller's wife, Marilyn, said this honor is so appropriate because when he found Farmington Bay, he quickly made up his mind to move the family to Farmington.
