Registration Details:

The CRPA is looking for six hardy souls to join Arne Peterson for an afternoon of wood duck nest box inspections. You will need warm clothes, waterproof boots, and a tough outer jacket. Leather gloves are recommended for removing screech owls. You must be able to hike a half-mile round trip over rough terrain. Along the way, we’ll discuss predators, competitors, box placement, box inspections, and habitat needs. The cost is $5.
