Ducks Over Georgia

Posted Wednesday May 31, 2017 by wf_admin

The skies over Augusta, Georgia have more wood ducks, thanks to Wildlife Forever’s purchase of materials and supplies to build more than 500 wood duck boxes. Western red cedar and treated 4×4-inch posts were purchased to support the boxes. All structures had 36-inch diameter metal predator guards installed to protect the ducks and their nests. Several civic groups were involved in building and installing the boxes, including the Boys Scouts, Special Olympics participants, and a local basketball team. The structures were installed in Richmond County, along Augusta Canal, around the Merry Brothers Brickyard Ponds, and at state wildlife management areas in Georgia.
