Lake St Clair Chapter of Long Point Waterfowl Fund Raising Diner

During the inaugral fund raising dinner on October 25 – 1014 board members of the local South West Outdoors Club donated a $1000 contribution to the Adopt – A – Hen program for ongoing research on Mallard Ducks in the Lake St Clair – Lake Erie regions.

Each duck is specialy fitted with a GPS solar powered transmitter to follow the movements to within an 18 meters of its location. All data is then collected remotely to track the ducks day and night to determine seasonal movement and survival rates.
