Kingston – For folks who want to learn more about local waterfowl of the Cataraqui Region, and ways to help their numbers thrive, the CRCA has the program for you.
Join The 1000 Islands Delta Waterfowl Chapter for a family friendly duck nesting structure workshop. During the first part of the workshop you will learn about habitat, local waterfowl identification and the importance of conservation. Part two will focus on the construction of wood duck boxes and mallard nesting tubes that will be used in the local area to help increase waterfowl production.
The event takes place Sunday, Feb. 3, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area’s Outdoor Centre. Pre-registration is required in advance at www.crca.ca/online-services. The cost is $4 per person, which includes the normal gate fee. All ages are welcome.
