Eagle Scout Project Complete at Daggerwing Nature Center
Daggerwing Nature Center congratulates Michael Yao, who, after over two years of planning and setbacks with the pandemic, completed his Eagle Scout project at the nature center. As part of the final project, Michael provided two Wood Duck nest boxes and built and installed seven Screech Owl nest boxes in the natural area.
The Screech Owl nest boxes are located close enough to the boardwalk for observation and can be seen by guests when walking along the trail. The Wood Duck and Screech Owl nest boxes will provide places for these species to raise young and will help support the diversity of wildlife around Daggerwing Nature Center.
