Merganser Relocation Update

Education, News No Response

It takes a team…but each relocation of a merganser brood helps us to reduce the occurrence of Swimmer’s Itch.

  • 11 broods and 88 chicks were relocated this summer.
  • Our new trapping crew and equipment worked well.
  • Challenges were trying to trap a few of the broods that seemed to be extra wild (maybe harassed?)
  • Broods came on the lake three weeks late.
  • Warmer water and weather added to the contact hours for swimming.

Thank you to all who reported broods, as cooperation helps our efforts in keeping both Glen Lakes and the Crystal River Watershed as clean as possible for optimum enjoyment.
