Wood Duck Project

South Carolina Waterfowl Association (SCWA) has always been a leader when it comes to installing, maintaining and servicing wood duck nest boxes. Since 1987, SCWA has installed and distributed over 24,000 wood duck nest boxes. These nest boxes have hatched over 1.2 million wood ducks along with thousands of songbirds and screech owls. The nest boxes also provide nesting sites for an expanding population of Black-bellied Whistling ducks in the coastal and midland regions of South Carolina.


Each year SCWA builds and distributes 350 wood duck nest box units that include a galvanized predator guard. Nest boxes are distributed through local SCWA Chapters and are sold from our main office to landowners who wish to enhance wood duck production on their land.

SCWA’s team of waterfowl biologists can help to evaluate your wetland habitat to determine if your property is suitable for nest box installation. SCWA biologists and wildlife management apprentices continue to maintain nest boxes on several large projects. SCWA staff is also available to install nest boxes on larger projects.
