Track Osprey Movements Online
After wintering in Central and South America each year,
osprey return to the same nest sites on the creeks, rivers, and
shorelines of the Chesapeake Bay. Once home, they may travel
many miles a day in search of supplies for their nest and fish
for their young. With support from conservation-minded
Microwave Telemetry, Inc.—a manufacturer of devices
researchers use to track avian and marine species—CBF has
tagged and is tracking four male osprey.
What Did You Do on
Your Spring Vacation?
This spring, CBF hosted three groups of stu-
dents from the Universities of Virginia and
Maryland who chose to use their Spring
Breaks helping to save the Bay. At CBF’s
Maryland Oyster Restoration Center, they
helped prepare oyster shell, install a rain
garden, and build reef balls. At CBF’s Clagett
Farm, the students potted trees and worked
in the greenhouses. They also worked with
our restoration staff planting and maintaining streamside buffers. These extraordinary
students have been a monumental help in
preparing for restoration season.
