Wood Duck Houses   Wood Duck Houses Project   Scout Project

wood, screws, wire mesh, drill with bit and screwdriver bit, wood shavings/chips
We worked in conjunction with the IA DNR and Ducks Unlimted for this event. It involved Wolf and Bear aged Cub Scouts. The DU provided the supplies (wood, screws, etc) and the lunch for the boys. The wood was pre-cut by DU members for the boys before they arrived.
The project was coordinated with the IA DNR and DU.
We started the day by having a DNR agent discuss habitat, food chain, life cycle, restoration, etc of the wood duck and Cananda Geese. After learning about the life of a wood duck, the boys worked with an adult partner to build the duck houses.
When the houses were assembled and painted, we took a lunch break.
After lunch we drove to a nearby wildlife area. The boys helped the DNR agent raise two of the duck houses.
This a great opportunity for the boys to do some good for the environment and to get to know the local DNR agent(s). Build a relationship with the agents.
One wood duck house was autographed by the boys and will be auctioned off at the DU banquet.

With some help from DU, this was a great project.
