Osprey Banding 2018

Join fellow National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) members for a hands-on conservation research opportunity on Saturday, June 16th from 8:00 a.m. -11:30 a.m. at Patuxent River Park in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.  Begin with a brief presentation on the fish hawk, or osprey, with staff naturalist/biologist Greg Kearns of Patuxent River Park.  The experience continues on the water for approximately two hours, stopping at several osprey nests where 6-8 week-old chicks will be collected, banded, and released back to their nest.  Each banded chick will be weighed and its band number recorded for research purposes.  The boat is scheduled to return to the dock around 11:30 a.m. 

Program fee is $23.00 per NMEA member.  Space is limited.  Registration closes June 1st.
