Don't Feed the Ducks

A hearing will be held Nov. 21 on a plan to establish a pilot program to prohibit the feeding of mallard ducks and Canada geese on 174 land parcels near Little Hunting Creek until Nov. 1, 2007. The idea is to reduce the number of waterfowl in the area in part because of a potential health risk.

The Board of Supervisors set the hearing for 4:30 p.m. in the board room of the county Government Center, 12000 Government Center Pkwy.

Update 11/23: The Metro section had an article on this subject on 11/22.
