Building Heron Platforms and Owl Boxes
for Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon
Dan Rivera helped several scouts earn their Eagle Scouts by directing the building of heron platforms and owl boxes for several wetland areas. Josh Drake and Daniel Berger both of Troop 273 in Union City build heron platforms that are being used to increase habitat for the Green Blue Heron and Great Egret populations at Tyson Lagoon.
Owl boxes were made by Adam Lee of Troop 273 in Union City. These will be used to attract Barn Owls to the area.
