Ducks and Geese

Please, Break the Bread Habit!

It may be a beautiful day, and you might like to gather up the family and a loaf of bread and head to Tiemeyer Park to feed the ducks and geese but please do not do it. You will violate city ordinance.We are attempting to protect them and when you feed the waterfowl human food, such as bread, not only is it bad for their health but it also contributes significantly to the pollution of the lake and surrounding grounds. The colorful mallards and geese you see have bodies that allow them to fly. They are physically designed to eat natural foods growing in their environment to stay healthy and light for flight. Thanks in advance for your cooperation!
