Wood Duck Boxes

 A special thanks to St. Clair Flats Hunting Retrievers Club and the Scout Troop from south Warren.  Sunday, March 9 they braved the snow and cold to install five new wood duck boxes on several of the ponds at Wetzel SRA.  The scouts assembled the boxes and assisted with installation.  They the groups augered through a lot of ice (A LOT OF ICE) to install the support posts for the boxes.  Wood ducks by nature nest in hollow trees when they can find that "just-right" opening.  Groups like SCFHRC and others have been helping this duck for many years in areas like ours where their preferred nesting habitat has become scarce.

Coming Soon

Sometime in May we will again sponsor and host 2 fourth grade field trips at Wetzel SRA.  The field trips are all about nature education and the students always leave with a different outlook on our natural world.  Hopefully, Friends' efforts in these projects will instill a need in these young minds to preserve and protect our natural resources.
