VACAVILLE — A talk on the effort to improve the wood duck population in and around Lagoon Valley by building nesting boxes will be part of the Peña Adobe and Mowers-Goheen Museum Open House from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 6.

Wood Duck Nest Box Project volunteers Steve Broadley and his son Ben will talk with visitors about their effort to place wood duck nesting boxes throughout the park to increase the population of the waterfowl.

This is part of a statewide effort, sponsored by the California Waterfowl Association, that helped the wood duck population rebound after the loss of habitat. The initial plan is to establish four nest boxes on the east side of Laguna Creek in Peña Adobe Park. Once these nest boxes are being used, additional boxes may be added.

Little Bear from Rush Ranch will be on hand to show his flint-knapping skills and share American Indian lore. Pioneer cookies and sun bonnets will be on sale.

Peña Adobe is located in Peña Adobe Park in Lagoon Valley just west of Vacaville. For more information or to organize group tours of the Pena Adobe and Mowers-Goheen Museum, call the Peña Adobe Historical Society at 447-0518 or email [email protected]
