BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man is overseeing modifications of a coffer dam in the Saskatchewan River delta to help ducks along their annual spring migration to the Canadian boreal forest.

Brad Karel is an engineer and construction manager with the Great Plains regional office for Ducks Unlimited in Bismarck. He has embarked on his third mission north to enhance habitat for waterfowl with his current project in The Pas, Manitoba.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1EXvc5J ) reports the boreal forest covers 60 percent of Canada and is the second-highest waterfowl producing area in North America.

Ducks Unlimited Canada says about 12 million to 15 million ducks use the western boreal forest for spring breeding and as refuge when prairies are in drought.
