Join Greg Kearns, head biologist at Jug Bay Natural Area, as he leads 20 people on a pontoon boat trip on the Patuxent River where you will closely observe the osprey banding process. The boat has a shaded area. This 2-1/2 hour trip is for adults and children over 12.
OSPREY BANDING ON THE PATUXENT RIVER
Join us to learn about Ospreys, the often-seen “fish hawk” of local rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. His program will cover Osprey biology on the Patuxent River, the provision of nesting platforms, efforts to increase their numbers, his banding program with the public, re-introduction efforts, satellite tracking of migration and other interesting facts. He promises that, “You will be on the edge of your seat as you learn more about this unique species of raptor.” Enthusiastic and knowledgeable, Greg is a popular speaker who has presented many other nature programs in the past for numerous environmental organizations throughout the region and abroad.
