Kiva Slade has agreed to manage the 8 boxes at the Merkle site in Prince George's County, which is situated along the Patuxent adjacent to Jug Bay.

We inspected the boxes on May 29, 2013 and Kiva and her 2 children Zach and Alex, are now trained! All 8 boxes were used with 2 still active. Of the 6 nests concluded, 4 hatched yielding 61 ducklings.

Thanks very much to Kiva for contacting MWDI and for providing her kids their own Total Wetland Experience as the turtle shell souvenir indicates!
