It's a wrap. On March 28 we concluded the Tenth Season with a wonderful presentation by Craig Wood of the Narrow River Preservation Association and the Narrow River Land Trust. Craig used footage from the live osprey webcam at Garrison House Acres to tell us about The Ospreys of Narrow River.

Thank you to our presenters, to our partners — Friends of Canonchet Farm, Narrow River Preservation Association, South County Museum — to our host, the Maury Loontjens Memorial Library, and the series sponsor, Trio Restaurant. It was a great season!
