Jason Weatherford, is a graduate student majoring in Recreation and Sport Adminastration at WKU. For his ENVE 585: Independent Study Project, he chose to help protect the duck population by providing a habitat for nesting. He received funding from the Center's, KUPEE Energy Initiative grant to build seven cedar duck nesting boxes to help protect the ducks and eggs from predators while nesting and hatching. He mounted the boxes at Barren River Lake. This summer, Jason is planning on pre-cutting the wood and use the wood to lead a campground session with the youth camping at Nolin Lake this summer and distribute the finished boxes around the lake.
