Nest Box Maintenance Program

Offered in Ontario and Atlantic Canada

Enhance your wetlands by installing wood duck nest boxes!

Installing nest boxes in or around wetlands gives cavity nesters like wood ducks, goldeneyes and mergansers a helping hand when natural cavities such as holes in trees made by woodpeckers, disease or lightning, are scarce. It also provides you with a source of enjoyment and education!
