Have you ever wondered where all the ducks go after the race? The Oswegatchie Educational Center in New York recently retired some of their racing ducks…..4,300 of them to be exact…to make room for their new flock of 10,000 ducks. The Oswegatchie Educational Center in Croghan, New York is nestled on 1200 acres of wooded land within the Adirondack Park. Oswegatchie is owned and operated by the New York FFA Leadership Training Foundation, Inc. The center operates as a youth camp during the summer months and is open throughout the year as an educational and recreational retreat center.
