Escambia County Partnered With Northview FFA To Build Wetland Wood Duck Boxes

May 30, 2023

The Escambia County Natural Resource Conservation Division recently partnered with the Northview High School FFA Chapter to build wood duck boxes for wetland habitats across the county.

The division said wood duck boxes provide suitable nesting sites for wood ducks in urbanized areas and can help attract ducks to local wetlands. This first round will be placed at Jones Swamp Wetland Preserve, with more to come in the near future.

    Please someone enlighten me. I didn‘t know duck boxes existed. How do they work? Off the ground ? Also, doesn’t the hole seem too small for a duck?
