Homes for Wood Ducks - Nature Area
for the Wood Ducks
On Saturday. February 24, 2007, four wood duck boxes were installed in the waters of the causeway pond and two boxes secured in the trees around Quarry Pond. These boxes were the result of an Eagle Scout project by Justin Bartaway in which he and his Trenton Troop 1721 constructed 30 boxes in 2004.
Duck Hunters Association and the Friends of the Detroit River provided
the funds for the materials. Logistics, site selection and installation
oversight was performed by Robert Burns, Detroit Riverkeeper. The Trenton
scout troop again provided the labor for this installation. GINLC's board
member Bill Cloutier, coordinated the event. Bill is himself an Eagle
Scout and is actively involved in the Boy Scouts program. He is currently
the Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 1721 and a member of the Order of
the Arrow Leadership Group.
