    Goose Family Finds a New Home at Duchess Sanctuary

    Although the only official animals at our Duchess Sanctuary are horses, the sanctuary is actually home to scores of native wildlife. That’s why, for the past few years we have undertaken numerous wildlife projects with the goal of making sure we are living in harmony with our wild neighbors. Our latest project involved building two floating platforms for the largest pond on the property—one as a nesting platform, the other with perches for raptors and other large birds to sit on.
