Join Mass Audubon for an important day in the field — and help check osprey nests for occupancy and incubating birds along both branches of the Westport River!

We will meet at the Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary field station, and then depart in our own vehicles. One team will work from roadside viewing points along the East Branch of the Westport River, and the other team will do the same on West Branch. Sanctuary staff will lead each team and provide insight into the lives of the osprey.

Families are welcome to take part in this great learning experience!

Cost: $10 Mass Audubon members, $12 nonmembers
