Ducks Unlimited aids Petaluma bird life

Standing amid the marshes of Petaluma’s Shollenberger Park, Jeff McCreary points out the Northern shoveler ducks, the gadwalls, the cinnamon teals and the Canada geese.

And he’s confident that his organization, Ducks Unlimited, has had a positive influence on the waterfowl’s apparently contented existence in the wetlands, tucked between the Petaluma River and office parks.

McCreary, a Penngrove native who grew up in and around Petaluma, is the director of conservation programs for the nonprofit group that has helped conserve almost 5 million acres of land in the United States for waterfowl habitat.
