The MVDH has been installing wood duck houses since the 1970s, and goose nesting structures, which are commercially made, since 1999. The wood duck and blue bird houses are made by members of MVDH. Many can find our the MVDH nesting structures on Carlyle Lake, Baldwin Lake and Wildlife area, Pyramid State Park, Sparta Shooting Complex, New Athens Pit Three Conservation Area and local cities lakes and containment areas. MVDH also donate nesting structures to Ducks Unlimited and Delta Waterfowl for their fund raising dinners along with other wild life organizations. So people can find MVDH structures on numerous private farm ponds as well. The nesting boxes make it convenient for the waterfowl, and in the case of the goose nests predator free. The bird houses are for blue birds and house wrens both are song birds, which their songs are enjoyed by the community.
