Brian Walker creates wooden duck decoy carvings in all species and sizes in his business. He talked to the classes about the carving process and his business. He brought some beautiful sculptures to share with the classes. Students enjoyed identifying the various species they had been learning about in art class and learning about the process of making the wood carvings.
