East Branch could host duck, goose hunting

There may be duck and goose hunting in East Branch Reservoir’s
future.

The Akron Watershed District’s 416-acre reservoir is contained with
the Geauga Park District’s 926-acre Headwaters Park in Huntsburg
and Claridon townships.

Geauga Park leases the site from the watershed district and
provides various recreational opportunities that include fishing
and boating.

However, recently the watershed district approached the parks
system, asking that the two entities partner in possibly developing
a controlled waterfowl hunting program at East
Branch/Headwaters.

On Tuesday the three-person Geauga Park District board of park
commissioners was made aware of the contact by the agency’s
administrative staff.

“But it is still very much in the planning stages and we really
don’t want to say something that makes Akron uncomfortable,” said
Sandy Ward, the Geauga Park District’s communications
specialist.
