Bring family and friends to a relaxing walk through the woods to the viewing blinds on the lagoon. The hike will be roughly two miles on wooded trails. An ACES extension specialist and leaders from the FRIENDS of Wood Duck Nature Park will have loaner binoculars on hand and viewing scopes for the waterfowl. The leaders will also discuss plant and wildlife ecosystems of the preserve. Wintering ducks of several species have arrived. Eagles are often observed this time of year.
