We continue to take advantage of the short window of adequate ice covering the water under our waterfowl nest boxes on the property. We want to thank our volunteers who are supporting us with this effort during the brief window of opportunity. Abby Conroy, Marie Kennedy, Nick Miofsky (CT DEEP EnCon Police Officer), and Susan Spencer have made special efforts this winter season. Marcus Johansson helped us with several boxes that can be approached via land in the autumn.
