This was so fun and interesting! We started off in a pavilion learning all about wood duck nesting boxes and how to check them from the very knowledgeable Russ. Then we split off into teams of boaters and kayakers to scout out there locations. We had a great time on the water and got up close to many wood duck boxes as well as sighting turtles, an osprey, and a heron!
