Apricot Lane Farms’ pond is the largest privately owned native restoration project in Ventura County, California. It has become the perfect habitat for wild native birds, including mallard ducks. Captured in this short film, a female mallard watches over her baby ducklings as they forage and traverse the 1.5 acres of diverse pond ecosystem.
