    Please Do Not Feed the Ducks and Geese

    Why we don't feed the ducks and geese...

    They become reliant on human food and abandon their natural nutrition sources, which may cause health issues. In addition, they become accustomed to human activity and will use the park as their restroom.

    Signs have been placed at Reeds Lake by the City of East Grand Rapids and Riverside Park by the City of Grand Rapids. We have many inquiries on this topic and found this to be the best advice by wildlife biologists. Thank you for your continued efforts in protecting our environment.
