Published DateHOLDERNESS — Join the Squam Lakes Association (SLA) on Saturday, March 16 from 9-10:30 a.m. to learn about the art, science, and joy of creating and placing wood duck nesting boxes.
It won't be long before Wood Ducks are looking for a cavity nest to lay their eggs. Wood Duck boxes are an incredibly effective way to increase wood duck populations and the workshop will explore why this is and the effect that nesting box programs have on wildlife.
The SLA's Executive Director, EB James, who has years of experience creating and maintaining Wood Duck nest box trails, will lead the program. EB will talk about box construction, placement, care and the interesting wildlife that use these boxes.
At the end of the course participants will be putting together five boxes for the SLA Wood Duck box trail, and will be sent home with blueprints and advice for placing their own box.
This is a free family friendly workshop, but pre-registration is required. The program will be held at the SLA Resource Center, 534 Route 3, Holderness. To register visit: www.squamlakes.org/programs/online-program-registration.
