Wood Ducks and Nest Boxes: History, Current Research, and Management Tips
The Coastal Discovery Museum will welcome Beau Bauer on November 10 at 2 pm for this presentation. Wood duck recovery from near extinction in the early 20th century is largely due to the implementation of thousands of next boxes throughout the species’ range. Despite thriving across their range, little is known about the current effectiveness of next boxes in regard to growing and sustaining these populations. Join us to learn more about the history of wood duck nest boxes, multi-state research efforts examining their contributions to population growth, and management tips.
