Greenbelt needs “Citizen Scientists” to document the behavior of Ospreys in Essex County! We need volunteers to “adopt a nest” by visiting the nest at least once
a week, recording observations and taking photographs. The “Watch” season begins in early April and goes through August. Volunteers will need to submit an online data
sheet once a week and can email photos as well.

please tell us in the message field on the application. You will also receive an Osprey Monitoring
