Popular parks such as Bradley Lake book quickly. Why we don't feed the ducks! You may enjoy watching or even feeding the ducks at DeCoursey Pond or Clarks Creek Park. What you may not know is that feeding the ducks contributes to water pollution. It might sound silly, but duck poop (fecal coliform) is one of the major pollutants in DeCoursey Pond and Clarks Creek. Duck poop (fecal coliform) causes water temperatures to rise and can harm the local fish population. So next time you are tempted to feed the ducks please stop, and remember the pollution it leads to.
