Please Don’t Feed Waterfowl

Kingsport Parks & Recreation needs your help!

Please stop feeding ducks and shore birds on the Greenbelt and in all city parks. Although this seemingly generous act may be enjoyable, the effects can be harmful or fatal to them. It can result in un-natural feeding habits, overcrowding, and pollution of rivers and streams as well as increasing the likelihood of them being hit by a car.

Thank you for your assistance in ensuring that our outdoor areas can continue to be enjoyed by both people and wildlife.
