The Wood duck box building day will be held on Sunday October 21, 2018, beginning at 9:00 AM. This is a change from past dates when the boxes were built in late winter. This event will again take place at the Dearborn barn at the Flaherty Field Trial Area in East Windsor. Currently, the DEEP has only about 15 boxes available for the upcoming season. Box maintenance is most easily done when there is ice on the waterways so the need for boxes to be built early is important. We hope to see a bunch of "carpenters" at the event. Hammers, drills, and bits (driver bit for Phillips Head #2 screws) are the needed tools. All hardware and wood is provided. The barn is located on Wells Road, off of Scantic Road. If you enter 82 Scantic Road into your GPS it will bring you to the house next door to the driveway.
