Recent visitors to the Sanctuary may have spotted a new contraption in the waters of Wintergreen Lake. Just opposite the lagoon, visitors can see raised platforms covered with a cage. If you’re lucky, you may even see some ducks taking a nibble on corn. They are for trapping ducks so that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Biologists can place an identification band on the ducks!
