Ducks Unlimited Canada
DUC is interested in partnering with rural landowners within
the Kawartha region (Peterborough, Northumberland,
City of Kawartha Lakes, Ganaraska Region)
who have existing wetlands that may be providing
cavity nesting opportunities for wood ducks,
common goldeneye and hooded merganser.
These ducks traditionally nest in tree cavities,
so DUC is working with landowners
who are interested in installing nest boxes on their properties for waterfowl.
For more information contact
Jenn Lavigne (705) 721-4444 x 245 | email@example.com.
