Wood Duck Workshop

Wood Duck Workshop - Wednesday, April 21, 2021

10:00AM – 12:00PM - Pavilion #7 McDanel’s Launch Area (North Shore) - Moraine


Over the last six years, Specialty Outdoors, an outdoor education program based in Butler, has monitored and improved 100 wood duck nest boxes here at Moraine State Park.  Each year the hatching rate has increased and now an average of 300 to 400 young are fledged each year.  Russ Cawthorne of Specialty Outdoors will explain how this program insures successful nesting by selecting optimal habitat, box size, location, nesting material, and predator guards.  He will also discuss other aspects of the conservation of cavity nesting birds and how you can become a volunteer to help out.  Pre-registration Required.  To Register call the Park Office at 724-368-8811.  Social Distancing Guidelines will be followed.  Please bring a facemask or covering.
