Geocache Description:


Fun facts about the Mallard Duck:

Mallard Ducks usually nest in March, though by autumn most have formed pairs. They use nests located on the ground, made from leaves, grass, and other vegetation and lined with feathers. Often, these nests may be located away from water. The eggs are usually a green color, ranging from olive green to blue green. Between 8 and 12 eggs are laid in an average clutch, and they require between 22 and 30 days of incubation by the hen, or female Mallard Duck, before they hatch. Normally drakes have little to do with the ducklings, and the female will lead them to the water once they have hatched. Usually the drake will have abandoned the family during the first week of incubation. The hatching of Mallard ducklings usually occurs between the end of March and July. By the time they are about two months old, the little Mallard Ducks begin to fly.

This cache is located in the beautiful Carver Park. There is a nice little beach to swim from and lake to fish in. No motorized boats. I don't speak from experience but there are always people fishing so it must be good fishing. A really fun new playground is up above the lake near the parking lot along with a pavillion.

This park is located within the City of Woodbury and park hours are 6am - 10 pm.
