Thirteen Baby Ducks Are Born at Riderwood;  Mallards Mysteriously Come Each Spring to Give Birth to Their Babies and Then Leave by Summer SILVER SPRING, MD (April 18, 2012) -- Thirteen baby ducks have just been born in the courtyard of the Renaissance Gardens extended care neighborhood at Riderwood retirement community in Silver Spring, MD. Mallards have mysteriously come to Renaissance Gardens each spring for the past few years to give birth to their babies. They then leave by summer to explore new worlds of wonder. Renaissance Gardens residents and staff are now feeding the baby ducks and taking care of them as if they were their adopted pets. Renaissance Gardens - much like its baby duck visitors - has recently "spread its wings" to incorporate enhanced apartment, activity, and lobby designs that maximize socialization and independence of its residents. Renaissance Gardens has 230 assisted living units and 132 skilled nursing units. Riderwood sits on 120 acres that stretch across Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. It has received Wildlife Habitat Council Certification, making its campus a beautiful ambiance for the baby ducks. Nearly 3,000 people live at Riderwood.
