Wood Duck Box Building and Placement
One of 12 volunteer projects, organized by Terradise Nature Center, as an entry of the “Feet on the Ground; Hands-on Conservation” Program. This program serves to directly involve the communities local to Caledonia, Ohio with their natural resources and wildlife conservation. Providing access to measurable efforts and meaningful change to our volunteers will ideally shift attitudes towards positive behavior for local woods and water.
Terradise will be purchasing all lumber and hardware to build Wood Duck Boxes (seen below).
All materials will be pre-cut and packaged into kits that you can pick up from the Nature Center and build at your leisure. If you have a location in mind to place one of these boxes, with permission, we encourage you to do so. Do not forget to update us on the progress of your project! If you are just interested in the build you may drop your box off at the Nature Center and we would be happy to place it on our property. All boxes placed on our property will be monitored throughout the spring and you will be notified of any activity.
The cost of a Wood Duck Box Kit is $10.
Wood duck boxes also encourage the nesting of eastern screech owls.
Our greatest thanks to our partners in this project and stewards of our natural resources, Whetstone Industries. With their help we will be sure to reach our objectives with this project in connecting our communities with wildlife, as well as, to construct and place 25 new wood duck boxes along waterways and wetlands in both Marion and Morrow Counties.
If you are interested in a nest box to build and place, please contact Terradise-Director, Tyler Butler, at email@example.com.
