This is a project I started last year in memory of my father. We’ve built 10 so far. My father loved watching Geese!!! So we’ve been raffling DU prints that we have at our DU Event to raise money for the nesting structures.

My dad spent his time in the winter putting nest boxes in every lake ‘n pond around! Every time l see one my friends ‘n l say, ‘Ol Fred put that there! Nice rememberance of him! Been gone 11years! He also worked on every committee around, DU, NWTF, REMF, many local city organizations & some l forgot! A lot of the committees, had calls with his name, plaques & a bench with a plaque & his name on it at our Sportsman’s club! So good there was so many things to remember him by! Surely missed!
