The Nevada Department of Wildlife is recruiting volunteers for a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) project to monitor wood duck nesting boxes near Fallon, along with other duck banding projects. These are great opportunities for families! In this week's Nevada Wild, Ashley Sanchez and Aaron Keller sit down with USFWS biologist Chris Nicolai and NDOW Waterfowl Staff Specialist Russell Woolstenhulme to explain the wood duck project, how the data is used, why biologists band ducks, and how you can volunteer to get involved.
