alternator duct

Searched, only found 1 thread that really didn't go into detail. this is the first car I've owned that has a duct for the alternator. I'm sure it's there for cooling of the altnerator which is good. Does it have a filter or screen in the duct work somewhere? I mean, what is stopping leaves and dirt from entering it. Is that a maintenance items to take the duct apart and clean the leaves out? I'm goingto pull it apart make sure it's clean and clear for peace of mind.
